Advice on squeaklets needed

Hi all,

This is a question for all the people who've been playing with

I have a squeak application that I want to turn into a squeaklet.  The
app consists of:

* 156K source code (uncompressed)
* 272K data file (a gzipped lexicon)
* 30K images (gzipped bmps)

Grand total: 458K

Now, my question is what is the best way to deliver this so as to keep
the download size and the compilation time smallest?

I don't know much about how to use the image segment stuff - is it
possible to deliver the source code compiled, rather than downloading
then fileing it in?

My current thinking was that the squeaklet would load and compile a
short script which would download the other components, unzip and
compile them, then start the application.  Does anyone know any better

Thanks for any help...
