Actually the problem was that running the convertion created the new 
trailerClass method. Of course I tried this before committing and as a 
result committed the wrong version. Lesson: Don't use 'self compile:' in 
initializers. Class vars can be used to good effect here.

(source.squeak.org now seems to have to a grinding halt - I may have to 
wait before I can commit the cleanup changes since I have another 
appointment coming up rapidly)
