Ginsu is a tool to decompose an application like Squeak into module (not a
scoping mechanism but in the sense of code management) like Envy
applications. Ginsu defines how application can be built from a set of
modules (the versioning aspect is missing).
With Ginsu you can specify your module and their dependencies and classes
are sorted and the modules are created. This is quite simple and effective.
You can read more about Ginsu at Squeak Foundation web site.
