Ok, just to show what I mean. Suppose I make a package type that holds a
single method that goes something like
^#((RBModel 1.09)
(RBGUI 1.06)
(RBTests 1.05))

Then I write a service that loads this kind of package, and does
packagesList collect: [:packagePair | SMSqueakMap loadPackage:
packagePair first version: packagePair second].

Or maybe something a little more complicated, but you can see where I'm
going... I don't need much more support.

Hey, I'm just one voice here.. and not even offering any cash, so... ;-)

Ah, I see what you mean. I'd thought you were going to implement that
RPC anyway, since the image do need to communicate anyhow.
