Well I don't like being pushy, but I will try to take a little initiative.
:) I think it is a nice opportunity to learn about the TestViaMethodCall
mechanism, at least for some core tests.
Speaking of testing, the SDDB, that Duane just implemented, would be great
for storing Tests alongside the documentation of classes. This way we don't
have to pay for them to sit in the image. We could create a TestCaseLoader,
which would load, run, then unload the TestCases.

Awesome! Thank you, Tansel. This simply must make it into mainline squeak.
If this gets delayed for 2 years, I'm gonna go bonkers. I suppose it is up
to SqF to make this happen. Shall we shoot for May 1 for the 4.0 VM, just
in time for SqueakEnd?
