I think this is what I need. I tried to directly call from a Seaside anchor 
    SmalltalkImage current saveAsNewVersion
and it froze Squeak. Solid. I don't know how to tell what is eating up 
cycles, and how to interrupt or kill processes yet (took a look at 

(btw - this is for a demo I need to do, not for saving my squeak devlopment 
work :-)

I found OSProcess but don't know how to "fork an image", actually I'm almost 
out of time for this "feature" :-) If you know it off the top of your head 
please shoot me a hint.

Thanks - Sophie
