MultimediaMonticello (was ProcustesEnd) solves this problem.
You can add any kind of additional resources like pdf, gif, png, jpg,
morphs, etc.
And save your package in SqueakSource.
SqueakLight3 have it and is 3.8 to 4.2 compatible.
I need to recheck all and maybe could put the needed logic in FunSqueak.
Stay tuned.
