ok sorry I do not get why roassal depends on event recorder.

Sure but Pharo is alpha. If in alpha we cannot do this can of things then 
I prefer to do something else.

No because I spent my time cleaning and moving GTRecorder out of Pharo 
and the same for BlueInk. 

Now I’m sorry but this is not my fault if 
	- you work in alpha
	- roassal depends on old projects

I’m fed up to have a system full of shit and abandonware. 
I’m fed up to have tons of user of global everywhere that I do not want to fix. 
I’m fed up cleaning the mess of others.
