[Newbies] how do I get a change lost from all change sets back
into a valid change set?

Yes, it's in the cascaded "more..." context menu (middle/yellow
button) from the method name in a method pane! Thanks! I knew there
had to be a proper way to do this but I somehow missed this menu item
in my frantic search for a solution yesterday.

Yeah, that's a little too much overkill as Chris else mentioned.
I'm surprised there's still no easier way to collapse some
intermediate changes on individual methods (or even whole classes and/
or projects). In the version control / SCM world it seems to me this
is a quite common request; though it is one that's not always handled
so well by more primitive systems.
Certainly for whole projects the file-out/file-in method Dave
describes is probably still the most complete and correct. However
for trivial fixes to one or two methods this seems overkill.
On the other hand maybe I just need to adjust my paradigm for
versioning many things a bit more to be in line with the current state
of the art in Squeak.
How do folks propose small changes or fixes for Smalltalk these days?
I'm still very much entrenched in the diff/patch world of CVS and
similar systems. I'm used to looking at diffs to understand changes,
and I like to read them directly in e-mail, not have to dive into the
programming environment / IDE / emacs or whatever and then perform
multiple operations just to then view the change inside the the IDE,
no matter how much more powerful the IDE presentation of the change
I am looking forward to learning to use Monticello to see if it really
does do the kinds of things I think it should do for full SCM within
