View Source question

Indeed, that is one of the virtues of Squeak. Python was somewhat of a
compromise in this respect, but it has the virtual that opens up ready
access to most of the rest of the GNU/Linux world.

Both are pretty friendly development environments. It is probably
easier to design an onion-like view source in Squeak, but Chris Ball's
efforts in Pippy are pretty rich as well.

Alas, this is a feature that, as has already been mentioned, hasn't
had enough time and attention yet. It'd be nice to "architect" what
view source means in these different environments to provide a
starting point for developers as per the original post in this thread.
