Hi Herbert,

What a late response to your questions, sorry! I hope I'm not too late 
with answers ...

Yes it could be.

Slo in those methods means that are to support Slovenian language and 
there are many such methods still in the code. Remember that Aida was 
born in 96, when there were no traces of any i8n support in Smalltalks. 
Well, now there is, but incompatible among Smalltalks. And because I 
wrote and still write most web apps for Slovenian market, those methods 
helped me a lot.

Yes, we need to replace them gradually to something better ...

Nice to hear that :)  Yes, if somenone can do analysis of unknown 
references, we can clean them up.
