>From what I've understood, Pavel has split the 3.9 image in two: a
Kernel image which contains the basic system and a RestOfSqueak that has
everything else. But it seems to me that the RestOfSqueak is as
monolithic as the standard image: you can't reload Morphic only without
loading Etoys, Nebraska etc.
