There are

	Smalltalk obsoleteBehaviors size = 202

in 3.8gamm.

Most seem to refer to the multilingualization.

The wiki recommends something like:

	Smalltalk obsoleteClasses do: [ :c |
		c allInstancesDo: [ :i | i becomeForward: nil ].
		c becomeForward: nil ].
	Smalltalk garbageCollect.

This does indeed get rid of the obsolete classes.

Can any one comment whether this is a) safe b) whehter there is a policy  
of removing obsolete classes in gamma/final images ?
