Hi alan

I know I was playing with Squeak inside web-browsers and this is 
clearly the way to go
in terms of out of the box impression.

I was not clear with my point. Now if a person (first year student 
wants to play with squeak) there is no easy installer for mac or PC as 
far as I know. So my low-level solution was to have a consistency in 
terms of name and to avoid to have
squeak3.4image and squeak3.2b8 vm.

No more than that.


I will find a way to turn around that. But if you look in the book of 
mark or in the book of goreniek they all have to deal with "getting 
started with" and explaining what is an image, a vm.....
