Hi Dale,

That was bad quoting on someone's part as that question was not from
me but from Mariano. :)

As you say, Slime depends on the refactoring engine, not the UI. But
that doesn't change my point, nor Doru's question. I still don't think
that loading Grease should require you to load the refactoring engine.
I'm pretty sure Slime should be in its own Metacello package
("package"? yes?).
