The dumbest thing. Hmmm... Very generally, and without going into 
details: There is a difference between "throwing them out" and 
"factoring them out". EToys is not Morphic. Morpic is not Etoys. At 
least, in theory. Unfortunately, in Squeak, you can't separate the two. 
The immensity of eToys' potential doesn't change that.
