It _could_ potentially be done by Squeak but the current system has no
file linking capability. It is one of those little jobs that the basic
OS stuff is well suited to and (current) Squeak is just barely suited
to, so it is likely to be easier to use the OS scripting.
I would be very pleased to be able to say the Squeak is the obvious
choice for this and maybe when the module stuff is well sorted and the
file system stuff is improved it will be true.
