Stef and Max,

I was just about to pull together the changes that I'd made to 
Filesystem for the port to GemStone and was just about to bag the whole 
effort until Max stepped in ...

So, Max I'll share a little bit here...then when and if you pick things 
up again, let me know and I'll try work with you to integrate my 
changes. The port was based on Filesystem-lr.83 and my mcz files are 
located in:


I restructured things into three packages:


Besides pushing platform-specific code around I added a 
FSReadWriteStream class so I would have a Filesystem-based read/write 
stream that was independent of Squeak/Pharo...

I seem to recall that I had some notions about more restructuring that I 
thought might be useful but I'd have to get my head back into the code 
again to refresh my memory ...
