Oh great, just when I thought I was getting my head around etoys, you
go ahead and point out  a whole section of functionality I knew
nothing about (namely, connectors).  <sigh>

I do like your solution, although it doesn't seem like it elegantly
extends to the case where you might want to revisit a waypoint at some
point in the cycle (for example, a figure-eight, with one waypoint
marking the intersection).  A list-based solution seems more
extensible in this way.  Still, I'm glad you mentioned your solution,
because otherwise I would have had no idea about the capabilities of
connectors (I had seen them in the object catalog, but thought they
were just diagram-drawing tools, not something with actual
directed-graph functionality).

Speaking of somewhat-hidden functionality, buried in the world menu
I've found a number of menu items relating to "cards" and "stacks". 
Is there some sort of hypercard-style subsystem within Squeak, or is
this something else altogether?
