cool, very insteresting.

The sake packages version can simply have all of the definitions, it
shouldn't need the seaside interface.

You are loading Installer and all of the package definitions for every
package supported by squeak. If someone is building an image using
Sake/Packages they will have all that loaded already in the base image
from which they are starting.

Also MC1.6 (with SystemEditor enabled) is 3 times faster than MC1.
