Hm, you're right, we don't really need to remove the category in the 
update stream.  It mainly needed to be removed when I created the 35 
packages, so that it wasn't one of them.

Make sure that you're using a basic image, not a full image.  Following 
this new update stream with a full image will only invite problems, and 
is probably pointless.  (Ok, I just tweaked the 6675 warning update to 
encourage people to start with a 3.9alpha-basic image to clarify this.  
Yes, this image is not available yet, but it will be before we announce 
the new process to the public.)  I started with the 
Squeak3.8-6665-basic.zip on the ftp site.

Anyway, I changed 6672 so that it only removes the three player 
classes, not the category.  Give it another try.  (You'll eventually 
hit the problem with SM-Base mcd file, but at least most of the 
packages will load, and you can poke around the packages with MC, and 
also look at the 6676 MCConfig update.)
