I just wanted to add that this scheme of having a test package for each
removed "Squeak official" package sounds like an excellent idea.  Probably
eventually (in a future version of SqueakMap) there would be a special link
from a package to its test package, or the test package would be a dependent,
or something similar.  But for now, a regular extra package sounds great.

Mmm, would we want to make the original package maintainer also be the
maintainer of the test package?  If possible, that might be best, even if you
end up writing some of the initial test packages.
