I think this is an important point.  Ian, if you have any input to the 
HyperStudio community, invite them to look in on both Squeak and on seul-edu, 
and mention that we're looking to get HyperStudio-like capabilities in an open 
source, cross-platform application and that we're hoping to get input from the 
users of such applications on what to include and how to present various 
possibilities within the constraints of Squeak.  You might also mention that 
we're not tied to Squeak but are interested in any authoring tools that can 
meet these requirements.
