Scott mentioned awhile ago that he would be releasing a candidate image 
for 3.4gamma.  I thought it might be helpful to at least have a mention 
of SqueakMap somewhere in one of the introductory windows of the image.

So, here's a proposed paragraph blurb introducing SqueakMap.  I thought 
it might be best located in the "Welcome to..." window, after the very 
first section but before the "Morphic" section.  (The "*here*" link 
would be a DoIt link which would execute "TheWorldMenu 

Or, it could go in ReadMe.txt or somewhere else, but I think the Welcome 
window might be best.  Feel free to improve the wording, etc.

(In theory, we could also have an introduction to the Guides, but I'm 
not sure that's as important.  There's not really any mention of Squeak 
Central in the intro windows, anyway.)
