I have set up a package universe that has Damien Cassou's picks [1]
for his developer's image.  It's the default now, so, if you install
"YAXO" and "Universes" from SqueakMap, your image will be pointed at
this Damien's picks universe.  You can then select packages among
these finest of Grade-A packages, without having to worry about

Let me join the chorus and thank Damien for doing this kind of work.
I of all people can tell you it takes time and effort.  When I made an
analogous effort for Squeak 3.7, I found that only 200 of the 500
published packages made sense for the then-current version of Squeak
[2].  You'll notice that I have not found the time and energy to try
it a second time!  :)

I'd love to hear how it works for anyone.  I cannot add major features
right now, as much as it pains me, but I can try to fix any smaller
problems that crop up.
