The definitions are stored in a set at (squeaksource) project level.
Each definition in the MCVersion snapshot is looked up there.

First goal was an archive format for code analysis. For that, it is a 
nice experiment. Loading and saving a whole archive takes a while, much 
more than just one mcz.
