It shouldn't be very hard to get Gofer working in Squeak, I would
think. It doesn't touch the UI (or it shouldn't!) which is one can of
worms that needn't be opened.

(We don't need to repeat the discussion around Installer/Gofer/Goofy:
I just want to see useful Pharo stuff available so we can avoid the
dreaded NIH syndrome. If it's ugly/overengineered/aesthetic-offending
and it WORKS, then I'm happy.)
