thanks for the overview. When you first introduced your non-existent vm to
the list, I knew it was cool. I had a few questions about what you wrote,
if I may..

This can't be that hard to do cross-platform, can it? I see that the files
are around 10kb, too.
so, what do these plugins do?

this is an interesting thought. We should build the smallest image that can
run SqueakMap, with the smallest vm.
I liked what you have written here: http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/2834.
