Dolphin's commercial origins force the issue with each release, but it's also a nice sanity check on whether or not I know what is in my image.  Are there any good tools for deciding what to load into a new image?  I encourage and Dolphin-using Squeakers to take a look at Migrate from my Dolphin Goodies - especially the version packaged for D5.  I would really like to see something like it for Squeak.

I will see if I get time to have a look, a bit swamped right now.

Yes, in the upcoming SM1.1 that bit is completely changed into a smart
cache. And there is no real point in hacking SM1.0x since SM1.1 is
different in other fundamental aspects - like dealing with not only
packages but also package *releases*.

SM1.1 will not be coming until earliest late february though - I have a
deadline to catch (fixed price job in Dolphin actually). But when it
comes it will be much more interesting than the current SM, especially
since it also will adress the dependency issues too.
