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.
