Is the stack look up trying to implement a form of continuation? If so, 
then VASmalltalk cannot be used at this time, because VA doesn't support 
continuations until the next major release.

VA uses Envy which has the concept of Applications and SubApplications 
rather than Categories. It not much of a distinction but it does cause 
the fileouts to be different. I just need to know which the sequence of 
AIDA categories to fileout and convert.
