This should not be a problem for Unix ports. The squeak.sh can be patched to 
detect VM image format and then launch the right VM for it. The magic file is 
attached. e.g.

$ file -m squeak.magic *.image
Squeak3.9-7067.image:          Squeak Image Classic
Squeak4.2-10548-alpha.image:   Squeak Image Standard

-------------- next part --------------
0	leshort		6502		Squeak Image Classic
0	leshort		6504		Squeak Image Standard
0	leshort		6505		Squeak Image with Closure and Float reordering
