I don't see why those of us who use highly capable text editors and command prompts should be forced to view proficiency and comfort with Emacs as a "mental block". The fact that Squeak (and apparently other Smalltalk environments as well) tie you to a text editor only marginally more capable and useful than Notepad is only one of many unnecessary absurdities one must accept if one wishes to explore the Smalltalk design paradigm.
