Hi people!

(I am just following this thread loosely)

Personally I think we should "keep things simple" so that Full is just
Basic + more.
Perhaps I misunderstood the discussion, but IMHO we shouldn't remove
developer tools in Full that are in Basic.

And another thing - we have been talking about having Monticello
included in Basic. I think that would be good.
Monticello is a major important piece of the whole "packages" thing, we
have discussed it earlier too.

PS. And of course, when I say "in Basic" I mean "as a package" - just
like with say PackageInfo or SqueakMap.
