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.

Hmmm, I am not sure what you mean here. What we do need to "shape up" is
dependency handling in SM - and I have begun a bit on it according to
plan. Could you briefly explain what Migrate does?

Eh, I thought it had. :) Could you explain more closely what you are
observing? I thought the current SM uses the cached file if available.

Sidenote: I posted some code showing how to preload the cache recently,
may 11th subject "SLOC in Squeak History". Note that for people making
Squeak CDs etc, this is a way to populate the SM cache with the current
latest releases.
