That could work - it is certainly worthwhile to work into that
direction. Instead of a "to download click here" button a sort of
wizzard that asks what you want to do with Squeak :-) .

However, people can't help wanting something "canonical". And I think
it'd be good to have something canonical, at the very least for people
like toolbuilders so they can build cross-distribution tools. We just
should make the canonical thing very small, I think (Core Squeak)...

Would you be willing to maintain a Seaside distribution?
