Well, yes, :) I wass trying to be funny but also to link to pharo. I 
think lisp co-evolved with smalltalk-80 yes, so there's a connection. 
Lets think about what LiPS could be in pharo... I thinkits the Little 
Presentation System, a minimal & modular UI/Ux than can be loaded into a 
headless image, and expanded as needed. Then when a headless instance 
gets hurt, we'd add some Lips to make it better. We have a better mythology.
