We want to start breaking Squeak into lots of packages. SUnit 3.1 should
be one of those. And you can't add stuff to the base-image that depends
on a specific package. 

So I vote for having all base-image tests in a dedicated package.
This package could have it's own update-stream.

(For the 3.5 release we could tink about a scheme where we have a
"base image" (as much removed as possible) and a "release image"
(An image with most of the functionality as today, but build from
installing packages into the base image). 

With such a scheme we could start taking Squeak apart even without
having to wait for SqueakMap supporting dependencies and virtual
packages (aka Distributions).
