[Squeakfoundation] Decision time: Are SCG the steward of the kernel as proposed?

I vote yes.

I was going to mention a minor concern about it being somewhat early to 
decide this, because the kernel might be the last piece to be separated 
from the rest of the image, which probably won't be for a while.  But 
this is an important responsibility, so figuring out something well 
ahead of time is probably a good idea.  And of course some improvements 
could be made to the kernel before it is separated from the image, and 
the steward would also help decide what exactly makes up the kernel, 
and how to separate it.
