I agree but can I shot a small provocation?
I have seen at least two project failed to stake out the image.
The squeak modules project failed, as far as I know.
Stable squeak project seems sleeping or dead.
And TFNR is dormant.
So I think we could start thinking in the **opposite direction**: build
an image with only the kernel, and start to add things to it.
For example we can start adding kernel and socket, and then SM.
We got a headless image without morphing, but perheaps listening for a
telnet session on a port, giving to us a command line squeak.
Then we can add all the rest via SM: morphic in primis and so on.

I do not think you failed!
I think we must change our tactics against "the blob image".
SM, BFAV and squeak people are a very big step in the squeak history: we
must start form there.
If we start with a tiny image, stacking out will be done by the mantainer:
NewbieGio:"Hey I got my Celeste AddressBook on the tiny image! What
must I do?"
Guide: "You must pack it in SM, resolve dependency and ask to the
telnet squeak to load it :))".
and let's go together!!
