In this case,
* The transition to SmalltalkImage is almost done, so it
wouldn't have too much of that.
* The condenseSource method has many dozens of lines, while the
deprecated method will have two or so. It doesn't add too much
* If we remove LastQuitLogPosition class var from SystemDictionary,
that will be a win. Adding Beeper wasn't a win.
So, I don't think that moving #condenseSource to SmalltalkImage and
rewrite SystemDictionary>>condenseSource so that it simply call the
SmalltalkImage one wouldn't have that much resitance.
