By the way, Scott, this sounds very cool.  I like the idea of a composite
buffer that remembers the origin of each of its chunks - I might try to
implement that in Squeak. Are the chunks visually separated at all?  Do
you have any screenshots?

It's too bad Fun-O never did a Linux port of the environment (I know they
did an alpha port of the compiler), I'd love to have a chance to play with
it more extensively.
