You do realize that you can install tODE in the server and then use Jade 
or GemTools or ??? as a client. If you at least install tODE in your 
server, then at you will be able to use 90% of the supported scripts 
(like updateGsDevKit and todeUpdate) and get the latest versions of the 
GsDevKit/GLASS code downloaded (updateGsDevKit) and installed in your 
stone (todeUpdate installs GLASS and Metacello, etc. if they have been 
updated) and I can easily help you move forward.

You can manage your own code any way that you want to and use Jade or 
GemTools or tODE or Pharo to do your development...
