You might say that! :-)
I don't think Smalltalk has *yet* -- after all these years -- solved
the delivery packaging problem. Actually, the Squeak team may be
closer to that than the VW guys.
PythonCard, alas, won't really work well under OS X until wxPython
works well under OS X. I'm being told by people who probably know
that this isn't likely to happen before the end of the year. I'm in
the same boat. I'd rather use PythonCard for lots of my projects than
RR (principally because of its object orientation and because Python
is the best programming language I've ever seen), but it's not ready
for OS X prime time yet.
Jython might be viable.
But I suspect you're going to find that you can do everything you
need to do in RR, actually. At least I didn't read any deal breakers
in what I saw from your note. But I'm sure Jeanne and others will
jump in here at some point. Maybe the weekend is slow.
Take Care. Always nice to run into a fellow "old timer" in HyperWorld.
