The only thing that I would want to check - and apologies for my ignorance
here - is backward compatibility with regards to image segments. My
recollection is that Squeak 3.9 broke all kinds of things, including
SqueakMap and EToys projects, as a result of incompatibilities associated
with the introduction of traits into the image. So I would just want to
make sure that NanoTraits does not introduce further incompatibilities
that might make it more difficult to support EToys projects in the future.

Outstanding. Simplifying traits can only be a good thing, regardless of
how much or how little they may be used in practice.
