This is really great.

Are you OK with these being shared more widely or do you want to work on them more?

Also a couple of extra shortcuts you might not have found yet:

- double click on the desktop gives you a dialog offering to take you ‘home’ ie back to the place you started from
- the ^ button on the outliners gets you all parents of the object

One fun thing which David showed me is to go to traits smallInt and redefine the + method so the first line gives the wrong answer, eg

+ a = (
123456789 = a ifTrue: [^ 42].
etc etc

then when you do 6 + 123456789 in a shell, you will get 42 

This usually appals people when you show it to them :) :)
