Ok, so what that basically means is, if you publish a package at the moment, 
you have to save it to Monticello, publish to squeak map and put it in a 
Universe, right? :)

It sounds to me like Universes could replace squeak map, right?  If so, 
would it be possible to hook into the squeak map (and/or Monticello) 
publishing process so that squeak map publishes cause a publish to a 
universe (or vise versa since the universe publish may require more info)?  
That would make migrating to a universe based system easier.  The easiest 
way to get people to use something is (a) make it transparently a part of 
what they did before or (b) make it do what they did before and easier for
