Sorry, but that's a no-go. Special selectors and special objects are a 
system-wide facility not associated with an individual namespace like 
Smalltalk globals. If the RefactoringBrowser looks for these facilities 
in a namespace then it is broken and should be fixed. If a compatibility 
layer is needed then it should delegate the other way around, i.e., from 
SystemDictionary to SmalltalkImage. Feel free to add these methods in 
the 311Deprecated package with a comment noting that RB relies on those.
