I've seen a document that described SmallTalk and thought it still looks
better than anything I've seen up to now; I think you're right about the
Star though, from what I remember of the Horn/Raskin discussion. I knew
Bruce Horn he was one of the SmallTalk developers though, dunno why I didn't
mention it.
