For easier installation I put Aida also on SqueakMap and Universes.
Especially from Universes you have now an one click install: just go to
category Web Development, select Aida version 5.4 and install.
From SqueakMap you need to install three packages in that order: Sport,
Swazoo, AIDA/Web. All three have for easier selection just one version.
