Could you point me to screenshots?
Because I fear that you are talking about what I used to know as Borland Delphi.(http://www.blichmann.de/en/programming/delphi/themeddelphi/luna.png)
Not that it is bad, but like Visual Studio and Eclipse, the main concepts are IMO as dated as what you got in Pharo.

If you are just looking for a UI designer, have you seen this? https://www.hpi.uni-potsdam.de/hirschfeld/trac/SqueakCommunityProjects/wiki/designer

I would rather be interested in a 'more fluid' version of Hopscotch:

Did not find a good demo without digging to much (there is one somewhere on youtube)
