That image derives from the image shrinking work that Pavel Krivanek  
and Steve Swerling did, which had been 3.7 based.  We use it to get a  
relatively small base image to use for Dabble DB (this matters: our  
servers have thousands of images lying around and they add up).

3.7 is also the last version before the switch to WideString. On  
balance, I'm not convinced that change was useful in a web context:  
it doesn't usually matter much whether or not Squeak is using the  
right encoding internally, as long as the bytes go back and forth  
unharmed between Squeak and the web browser - and converting back and  
forth between UTF8 and WideString all the time is a measurable  
performance hit.  That might be a North American, anglo-centric bias,
