That is a Really Good Question (tm). I have never really understood the 
way software distribution works on Linux. I'd *love* to have some distro 
or other pull "squeak-blabla[.dep|.rpm|.whatchamacallit]" directly from 
squeak.org. Anyone having an insight whether that is even feasible? And 
if so, what loops one needs to go through to make this happen?
