In the ANSI NCITS 319-1998 Standard for Smalltalk, there is the definition of a Smalltalk Interchange File (SIF).

I looked into moving source back and forth, and found an implementation of
Smalltalk Interchange File (SIF) by Eric Arseneau from the year 2000.

The Squeak version files in on Pharo 4 (and Squeak 5) and files some code out
successfully (after a small change in symbol handling).

Similarly the Dolphin version files in but fails to import a Squeak file-out, because Dolphin doesn't
understand {} in Dictionary class>>newFromPairs:.

Next step is to look at the compiler I suppose.
