Ok, thanks.

I was reviewing the Magma code (not working yet in Pharo 1.2, sadly) and
found several checks for new finalization code before execution some
parts of magma. So, as Chris said that Magma 1.2 is the only supported
version (no support for old versions), then I thought that I should
remove the checks given that Squeak 4.2 and Pharo 1.2 already have the
new finalization code.

Cheers
