I think I may be the guilty party that added the Tools and Packages
separation on the Swiki. My vague notion was that "tools" would refer to
extensions to the Squeak IDE itself, and "packages" would refer to more
general applications added on top of the Squeak environment - things
like mail and news readers, web servers, databases, games, .... Eh,
seemed like a good idea at the time.
