- there is no human resources to support bloated image(s) by single
team, and i hope that Pharo guys understand this clearly and never
turn back to strategy of maintaining big-fat bloated images. It should
be clear, where ends Pharo and where starts package(s) developed and
maintained by independent developers/teams.

- i think that somewhere in crosshatching Pharo and Spoon lies a golden spot:
  - having well integrated old-style image (Pharo)
  - but also be very agile/modular (Spoon).

- IMO, first and ultimately , squeak needs better modularity to move on.
- only when we solve the first problem, it would be much easier to
come up with better integration solutions (packaging tools)
