[squeak-dev] Loading Monticello Packages Programmatically

So, in my latest robot Roz:


I'm going to be replacing the current embedded board with a gumstix
Overo, running Squeak. I do development on a laptop, and then push the
code changes to the Overo.

The Overo will have wifi, and thus be on my local network. I want to
push code to it by sending a command (over a socket) to a running
headless image, and have it load a specific version of code from
Monticello from a network drive, into the live running image.

Is MczInstaller the proper way to do that?

I can see running something like this on the Overo:

  installFileNamed: '/mnt/dns323/monticello/package-name.XXX.mcz'

to do it. Is there a better (or more appropriate) way to do this?
