I'm looking at what it would take to port OMeta to Perl. After all, why
should Perl people miss out on what Python and Ruby people are already seeing?
I'm looking at the Squeak version 2 implementation as the base.
I think I can code the OMeta2Base class and OMeta2 classes in
Perl (using the decompiled Squeak code) fairly straightforward.
What I missing is how a String object actually gets matched
as a sequence of Bytes, because I'll need to do something similar
to pull apart a Perl Scalar as a sequence of "chars", which don't
really exist in Perl. Is that something in OM2StreamProxy that I haven't
