Hi Ron--

     Thanks!

     Yeah, this is a system that can serve a website for doing module
discovery and management, appear as a filesystem through WebDAV, keep
track of changes, and serve modules to other systems. Currently it's
300k, but there's another shrinking pass left.

Not only that, but is this also a practical way to make a small,
special-purpose image?  For example, what would it take to imprint
onto your 300K image from, say, a standard Squeak 4.2 image, just the
methods needed to run one method specified by the user, which would
cause all kinds of other methods to be faulted into the target image,
but still end up with considerably less than the entirety of the 4.2
image?

     Sure, that still works. It's how I intend to make a first cut at
some of the more complex modules later.
