saving window top/left in the image, and what does it mean?

Dear John,

first of all I will say that I know very little about the vm, or how 
squeak starts up. I have had a go at refactoring AutoStart and I have 
had some ideas in that area.

I am assuming that the vm is responsible for initializing a display for 
squeak before squeak has got up and running to use it. Is this the case? 
Does it have to be the case?

I am interested in eventually producing a minimum image whose aim is to 
handle the following command line (or similar).

#squeak min.image Script e="2+2"

I am wondering if the startup process for my minimum image is going to 
always be slowed down by the initialization of the display that I dont 

Does -headless skip the initialization of the display and send drawing 
commands into the void? I dont know how headless works. Can the image 
control whether it is headless or not?

I know that I have a lot of questions, I hope that you can see why I am 
asking them.

what do you think?

best regards
