Keith would be the interested person, not Ken.

It sounds like a good plan. Do you have a patch I could use to
get started? I would definitely like to see just how bad the
situation is in 3.9 or 3.10. Croquet would be nice too, but I
think the history of Croquet is much more muddled than the
history of squeak.org
