Whither Squeak?

Hi Stef,
I don't think that this is anybody's "fault" and I apologize if I
sounded that way (especially since I used your initials in the
example, sorry about that).

I just raised the issue because it is important to me, and I hope
that there are ways to improve the tools. For example, Cees suggested
a "Squeak museum", and maybe there are other ideas as well. Thinking
of a "museum" repository makes me think of a sources file implemented
in Magma plus Seaside.

And of course, thanks to Doug Way for Squeak3.9a.from.3.0.image which
shows that the history is not really lost, it's just no longer
visible in recent images:
