+1 on this. Popularity should not be a primary target not near to be
primary. It should be a natural consequence. Is not I don't like popularity,
on the contrary, but it should come when success is guaranteed (useful
popularity). Put efforts to force popularity easily blurs the focus the
community achieved to make Squeak what it is todays.
