Right, that might be a good way to handle it once the dependency stuff
is in place.
However, I'm guessing it will be a while before the dependency stuff is
working, so in the meantime, I agree that it would be good to simply
install the SARInstaller as part of the SqueakMap install. (Which I
guess would be done with a load script as Goran described.)
There are a number of packages on SqueakMap now which expect SAR to be
available, such as Roel's, and people are starting to submit [BUG]
reports about this problem (see Ross Boylan's message), so perhaps Goran
will be able to add this soon. :-)
