In fact, 3,9 did not have the games from 3.8.  For a long time, Squeak
experts have been complaining that the image is too big.  Things need
to be taken out of Squeak and put into separate packages.  3.10 is
continuing to move along this line.  I predict that future releases of
Squeak will be even smaller, i.e. even more things will be removed
from the base image.

Fortunately, Package Universe makes it very easy to describe a
configuration of packages and to reload all of them with one click of
the mouse.  So, the squeak-dev image is much bigger than any of the
images that has been distributed in the past.
