  ----- Original Message ----- 
  From: Michael Lucas-Smith 


    Actually I might just take a moment to bring up one of my previous points again. Syntax!
    Kent Beck showed me a very interesting phenominum in one of his books. It's called the rectangle.

    self connect: someLocation do:
        [:connection |
        ....
        ...
        ....]

    instead of the more C-like structure

    self connect: someLocation do: [
        :connection |
        ...
        ...
        ...]

    which leaves an onimous [ hanging out in the middle of no where. Ever since me and my collegues at work saw this [...] visually, we have adopted it. It makes things easier on the eyes. I really wish Ruby would let me start my blocks on the next line.
I would like this as well.  For me, the code is much easier to read.

Wayne
