Well, I don't *think* of it as SqueakMap but the comparison is somewhat
appropriate. The main reason why I don't think of it as SM is that SM
wants to be "all packages ever created for Squeak" but what we need is
"all packages that we've actually tested to work in this image". And of
course there are some other differences (like community ownership
instead of individual ownership of the catalog elements) but other than
that I agree; it would probably be quite similar to SM in what it does.
