A quick comment...
This whole thing/discussion/war reminds me of the Squeak mailing list, long ago,
in its worst days... Let's all take a deep breath for a second and put things
in perspective : aren't we just talking about 2 (TWO) methods here? Is this a
do-it-now-or-die type of decision? Can't we leave it as is for now and move
onto something else ? Yes, Pharo aims at being a super-clean environment but
there's enough crap still out there that we can surely delay that one (and think
about it a little bit more) and clean something else!
I guess that since I'm not a VM expert here, I'd have to rely on Eliot's
suggestion and advice and knowledge. If he says it's a lot of work from a
VM-building perspective, he must know what he's talking about. If he says it's
a lot of work, he must mean "it's a lot of work". If he says it's *really*
useful from a VM-building perspective, he must really "it's useful". He's built
enough VMs in the past, he must know what he's talking about.
Let's not allow this to become another "I-know-better-and-more-than-you" type of
argument (or ad hominem attack) that flooded the Squeak mailing list a few years
My 2 cents.
