Agreed, just pointing out that other systems have similar issues, and
do because it's not easy to do originally or to fix later on. But I'm
just a Pharo user, not a Pharo developer. I'm leaning on the shoulders
of much better developers.
It takes time to learn any system. I've spent 21 years programming Java
and there's still plenty I don't know. I've spent 16 years with
Eclipse and the current version bears little resemblance to the
original. Rebasing all of Eclipse on OSGi was done in an incremental
update, between 3.3 and 3.4 if I remember correctly.
>From the user perspective, at least the changes in Pharo provide more
caveats, given they've taken place in full version changes with alpha
versions preceding beta and stable versions.
