Port packages from Pharo to GST and improve tooling.

Many Smalltalk packages are built for the Pharo platform.
The sourcecode is managed using the Monticello system. GNU
Smalltalk offers a gst-convert utility to modify code from
one dialect to another. The goal is to port existing packages
from Pharo and improve the tooling. This could include porting
of Monticello, Filetree and or other packages. The goal should
be to automatically track and convert a package that has been
ported once.

OS process. We would like to move global variables into a struct
and start using thread local storage. In the first step it should
be possible to execute bytecode in parallel on two different OS
processes. This should improve the locking/atomic operation in
