[Seaside] How to convert a 1.4 Pharo Seaside image so that it will work with seasidehosting.st

I have found seasidehosting.st really useful for demoing projects such as
http://twitterbootstrap.seasidehosting.st and

If memory serves me correctly I had to build these images based on Pharo
1.2.1 and I used Squeak 4.2.4b1 VM.
I don't know what changed between Pharo 1.2.1 and Pharo 1.3 to stop images
working of seasidehosting? Is there any chance whatever changed could be

It's a real shame if there isn't a site available where we can demo
