could you tell us a little about MobVM and how it bootstraps itself?  for
instance, do you have an image that accesses the network to download plugins
or is it inside of the c code?  Is it written in slang?

I don't really know, but I was imagining that a basic SqueakMap installer
could be loaded into the base squeak image with the ability to load SARs
from the disk.   I think it would be useful to let SqueakMap load both
packages and plugins.  This is because I am seeing that SqueakMap tracks
loaded packages...
