Just in the middle of getting a fresh OpenVMS install set up on my
VAXStation (the original having been done years ago when I barely had
any idea what I was doing,) and looking through various repositories
for interesting software to put on there, and I got to thinking about
something I recalled reading about a few years back.

I know from the book "Smalltalk-80: Bits of History, Words of Advice"
- that, back when, there were two implementations of Smalltalk-80 for
VAXen - the first was Unix-based, done by an independent research
group, while the second ran under VMS and was actually developed
within DEC. This version - VAX/Smalltalk-80 - was headed up by Stoney
Ballard and Stephen Shirron; anybody know if there's a surviving copy
out there, if it was ever available outside DEC to begin with?
