Absolutly.
 
Is it possible to rip out the squeak graphical backend and bolt it onto
Erlang?
 
Then reimplement the low-levels of the GUI in Erlang?
 
I had a brief look at Squeak and this looked possible :-)

	I just got a deja vu ! 
	
	When I dicovered Smalltalk about 20 years ago  I found it the 
	most advanced (oo) programming environment and language. 
	
	
	When I discovered erlang about 3 years ago I found it the most
advanced 
	fault tolerant (etc.) programming environment and language. 
	
	 My idea was to  combine the best of both worlds -> write GUI
stuff in 
	Smalltalk ; write the rest (server ) in erlang.
