yes, well said Richard!!   This may work since I think there was  
mention that the target audience was Smalltalk-ers?
But, I am absolutely amazed at how many "20-something" programmers  
I've interviewed in the last two years that gave me a blank stare  
when you ask them if the've tried Prolog or Lisp.  That is, they  
haven't just not tried it, they've never heard of it.  To add further  
insult to this statement, these candidates all had master's degrees  
in CS from China's most prestigious schools... oops  ;-)
