I doubt that can be decided in advance, i.e. before a SoC project  
delivers. Also, applicants who aim more for a package based on Squeak than  
for an integral part of a Squeak release are unfortunately shyed away.

Are there really such an overwhelming number of applicants and, do most of  
them propose compilers, dev tools, SCM tools, image shrink-dryers,  
modularizators, traitisizers, bang-new-UIs and the like?
