[squeak-dev] Squeak and Tonel

as some of you might already know "Tonel" is a file-per-class format for monticello repositories [1].

In Pharo land many projects are already converted to it - as regular "file tree" solution faces issues 
with git handling due to very long file names / deep file hierarchy (often leading to trouble on Windows).

Dales's Rowan (a new project/package manager for Smalltalk) supports FileTree and also Tonel 
repositories [2]. There is also a tool to convert from STORE (VisualWorks Source-Code Versioning System) 
to Tonel format [3].

So I wonder about adoption of Tonel in Squeak land. 

Any status/comments?
