The "nuscratch" package comes with the following files (besides some
other files). The thing is that the package seems to have dependency
on the scratch package, which in turn has dependency on squeak-vm.
Note that both /usr/bin/squeak and /usr/bin/scratch are replaced with
the ones that come in the nuscratch package and old ones are renamed
to /usr/bin/squeak.old and /usr/bin/scratch.old.
Yes, I think it is good that the nuscratch package only replaces
/usr/bin/scratch, and not depend on the squeak-vm package.
