The early releases of the Native PostgreSQL driver were made to work in 
VisualAge and VisualWorks, but I never got around to GemStone. I even 
tried to stick to ANSI Smalltalk, for what that was worth.

The hard part of the port was finding a way to get the code to load, 
because VA used Envy and VW use Store/Parcels. I think I used Rosetta to 
get it into VA, and VW's Squeak fileIn compatibility code.

The next hurdle was connecting to the native socket layer. The driver 
just needs to read/write a buffer over a socket. I would not expect 
GemStone sockets to be a problem.
