Hi diego

m7 is waiting for support ;)
from our KCP side we want to have:
	- SystemChangeNotifier in 3.7 **extremely important** to support 
cleaning the system and supporting between tool
	builidng in the future.
	- Tests, such as the one of the classBuilder and others so that people 
get used to see tests as active and powerful 	documentation
	- Some other KCP fixes, cleans of the class compile protocol,
	fixes of SystemDictionary (nothing really difficult)
	- the cleans of the compile protocols that we are doing ritgh now with 
nathanael rely also on the
	use of SystemChangeNotifier (we already have the changeset and the 
.change logged as dependent and it works smoothly).

Why not? Guides it is up to you to decide.
