Except that as I've told Joseph a few times, there *is* a standard 
package concept, it just doesn't happen to be Ginsu.  Anyway, it would 
be really easy for me to output Rosetta format from Squeak if that were 
at all useful; I've just been outputting VW XML fileouts directly 
instead.  Let me know what would be best.

Coolest IMO would be to get Monticello ported to Dolphin and VW so that 
we could all share a repository, but that's a lot of work...
