Well, Aida is still not as popular as other frameworks, therefore is 
understandable to me that other Smalltalks want more popular framework 
ported there first. This increases their popularity too. But such a 
stance can be changed when they realize all strengths of Aida. Here we 
can compete most efficiently.
