As far as I know what you see is part of a extension to the current etoy 
system and partly implemented brigde between the etoy and Smalltalk 
environment. I'm not sure which state this system is in and there could 
be some rough edges, but I highly recommend you to try it out and report 
any progress back to this list. Not that all problems you will encounter 
are easy to solve but we can all learn from this, which is good.
