Well, since you are the new maintainer of Celeste, the course of action 
that I would recommend is to fix the problems with Celeste so that it 
loads in 3.7b. :-)  This is probably more important than any other work 
you might do on Celeste anyway.  If you get stuck on a particular 
problem trying to fix Celeste, you can post the bug report/stack here on 
squeak-dev and ask questions.

You don't really need BFAV in order to do this.

As a general strategy, you could have a 3.6 image w/Celeste running at 
the same time as a 3.7b image in which you try to load Celeste, and 
compare between the two images to see what is different.
