Pharo 1.1 uses annotations for both preferences and the world menu.

It would be very nice (for both forks) if we could be compatible on such a
fundamental piece of integration with the system, so that projects,
especially tools, will not have to manage platform-specific code for both
forks (I've already run into this with SSpec and my own projects).

Of course, not at the expense of coming up with something that blows the
approach out of the water, but why not lean toward compatibility and make
everyone's lives easier.

Also, it seems like all these points would have been thought of when Pharo
implemented.  And, more importantly, the users have some experience with
using the annotation approach.

I'll post a link to this thread to the pharo project list.
