Right, I forgot to add Comet-Squeak-Core.

Nope the script is wrong. It should load Seaside-Core-jf.320. It's
probably time to publish an alpha2 script.

Ok, let's to for another round. The attached change set contains the
very latest code from yesterday evening. It has seen only very little
testing. It loads almost everything including both Comanche and Swazoo
because we only implemented Comet on Comanche.

However the Seaside Control Panel now seems to work. You'll find it in
the world menu under tools.
