Hi !

*should* work, I tested it.

You see, that's what I never liked about working with images.  Maybe I'm 
just old school, but if I have two or three projects going on in my 
image, should I just delete my work just to get some other part working ?

Please, I don't want to offend anyone !  I understand the concept behind 
the image, and I *really* want to like Smalltalk, but the image thing 
has stopped me every time.  What I probably need are references as to 
*why* it is considered better to use an image instead of plain old files.

Thanks !
