Re: Squeak in Debian?

The font issues seem serious, and it is likely that Debian would have
to ship Squeak without the non-free Apple fonts.

Those files are source, they're just not saved as ascii text.  They
are SmallTalk source, saved in the preferred format for modification:
the native format of the SmallTalk class browser.

The Squeak VM sources are, I believe, in more traditional C-in-ASCII.
