Very thanks for valuable info.
I have you as the MVC Squeak champ and wish we could have a 3.10 MVC only
version many foreigners could appreciate IMHO.
I have a Squeak3.7-5989MVC.4.zip , based in your work and with added code
letting load .gif , .jpg , .png and .mp3 people ask me from time to time.
So , maybe is a niche, but think if you could made a 3.10 MVC or a safe
strip script as you made before.
