And vice versa. Until this works:

Squeak2.8.changes Squeak2.8.image SqueakV2.sources

we don't have Squeak as a scripting language. Python can trivially do
this. *** Aside: is anyone aware of this or working on this? ***
I can't imagine a CGI "script" written in Squeak no matter how well
the design would be... the startup cost of launching a new image is
probably too high. Of course, they say that about Perl all the time,
so the point is not to startup a new image - witness Comanche et. al.
