Except for the encoder, the code is basically the same. Things like
files handling, TimeStamp/DateTime are different, but using rewrite
scripts make the conversion easier.

The extract the encoder and other different parts in a package Iliad-GST and Iliad-Squeak, as a start.

Yes, I guess that's possible, thanks to gst-convert, with a script like
this one:
but doing the opposite.

Try it! :-)

Remember that gst-convert output need to be piped into "tr \\n \\r" for Squeak/Pharo to use it succesfully.

We decided to add the "IL" prefix to the classes of the gst version. We
will keep the namespace, though.

The namespace is harmless, and I applaud the decision as ugly as it may be. I think if you write on the Squeak and Pharo lists talking about the above steps (it basically looks like it is a matter of scripting the loading of .cs files produced by gst-convert) you can find a volunteer more easily.
