Our goal is to bootstrap the system so in the process we are cleaning a lot of dependencies
and misplaced behavior.  I did not get what was your approach.
We tried to several onces before microsqueak came in our radar.
	- selecting classes and recompiling them in another environment filled with stub.
	- building analysis tools on top of Moose to identify dependencies
