Hi Mark,
You might want to send your query to the "" mailing list 
which is "populated" /read by more programmers /"cs types" than 
teachers, parents and kids....the Squeakland list is comprised mostly 
of people using the "etoy"/tile interface of Squeak than with this 
kind of code.
cheers and good luck!
