For me this is costing much more energy to me.
Then if you want to create a mini image yo can simply remove all the 
sbclasses of TestCase.

Why a decision should force people working losing more time.

So I should be really idiot then. Let us make a deal, if you collect 
**all** the tests
that are related to the image, sorted them in the right category, check 
they make sense, ... and publish each time an updated version of the 
as Bruce Oneel is doing it then perfect I'm ready to go for a package.

Now if this is me that have to do that. I will not I do not want to 
publish all the
time a package anytime somebody send a new test suite. Also the tests 
be in alpha image as we are changing the system and more likely to 
break it.

I hate removing text because I read nealry 100 emails per days in 
and not only on squeak so the context helps me to remember and I can 
following a question
of other people.
