I am not proposing keeping it locked up. I am making the modest
proposal that we keep it in perspective.
Do I have a problem with Squeak?? Not in the least. It would be
inconsistent with everything I am trying to say to have a problem with a
piece of software, especially one that is technically interesting by
just about everyone's assessment. I have a problem with overreaching,
Millennialist ideas and claims, Grand Fallooning and etc and etc. It
happens, for whatever reason, that happens a lot surrounding Squeak.
But it is not Squeak.
I like it just as little when it happens surrounding Python, BTW.
