yeah.. we talking about it all the time "how good it would be to have
metacello preloaded in image" :)

You can tell  how they could help, so they will (if they will still
want), leaving less work for you :) Of course, if you need help or can
see where it can be useful.
But i know it is hard to coordinate & organize activities.. sometimes
harder than doing everything alone. :)

yes.. it is hard to keep up with moving target.. But i hope this is
for good of us all (FileSystem ,as to me, is no doubt much better
comparing to what we had before).
