The nice thing about having this is that, just as we could do with VMs,
you don't actually have to keep any bigger images around except for some
possible convenience. And if the kernel image can be made small (where
the definition of 'small' is completely open right now) it would make
good sense to _always_ bind it into the core VM executable.
Oh and we might want to think of different term to SqD's - it sounds
like 'squids' which is a somewhat derogatory term in motorcycle-land for
the sort of nitwits that ride top-end sport bikes badly, without any
protective gear, and generally irresponsibly. You know the sort - 18
year olds with rich parents that buy a GSX1000 as their first bike. Not
the image to mix with responsible, sober, thoughtful Squeak developers.
Sorry, excuse the saliva on the screen, I'm getting the giggles here...

Computer and car salesmen differ in that the latter know when they are lying.
