Hi Jecel,

Removing eToys implies deleting "eToys awareness" in lots of methods 
that would not be deleted. Even several instance variables as in 
MorphExtension. I don't know how to offer the user the option for 
removing it, let alone keep that option properly maintained in future 
Squeak versions.
