I agree with Goran, 100%.

Therefore, I think the Squeak homepage needs to be updated to point to
SF for the official Unix VM. *After* the SF project has made a release
available for download so people don't need to use CVS to get to an SF
based VM ;-)

The good thing about CVS is that you can undo things reasonably easy, so
probably the best thing to do when you want to hack the VM is to ask to be on
the developer list of the SF project - that'll give you commit permission. 
(about commit permission: I got Bert's 3D plugin to work with the SF sources,
the Nudi3D fishtank gives 20fps on my box (400MHz PII with Riva Vanta). My SF
id is 'cdegroot' ;-)).
