I'd package the image and changes file, maybe along with the VM, and ship those.

You can add a class to the startup list:
SystemDictionary>>#addToStartUpList: will do that. The class is
required to understand the #startUp: message, which will be sent to it
when the image is loaded and started. #startUp: accepts a Boolean
telling it whether the image is resuming (newly started).

That one, I cannot answer.
