The problem with this kind of "wait", and indeed the reason why such a  
"wait" tile is not offered in the Viewer already, is that it paralyzes  
the rest of Squeak, including the running of all other scripts, for  
the duration of the "wait".  Thus, it's usually not acceptable within  
a multi-player simulation.
