By cross platform I mean, you just use the same source file and build it
on all platforms (like BitBltPlugin, no platform specific files
It's almost 2003 now, I believe that the service to get a file via http
just as high tech as 'strcpy'. If it's not available as a service
the OS, it should be available somehow, at least from a lib.

These two provides the facility to load shared library, read
file (ini file under Windows) and download files via http.
Pop and Mom go together and always resident :-)
This plugin manages the plugins.
It is itself managed by Mom
and Mom is managed by Pop.
(and Pop is managed by the kids ;-)
This plugin manages the modules 'up there'
(to be loaded into ObjectMemory).
Currently, there are 2 modules for it to manage:
VI4 image and VI3 image. Yes, each image is a module
(who says Squeak doesn't have module ;-)
