     Yes, that would go like this:

-    Start up a blank Spoon history memory.

-    Start up an arbitrary Smalltalk memory (Squeak, Pharo,
     VisualWorks, VAST, GNU, Dolphin, whatever). Let's call it the
     "control memory".

-    Load minimal support for Naiad (Spoon's module system) into the
     control memory, using the dialect's packaging system (e.g.,
     Monticello, Store, Envy).

-    From the control memory, make a Naiad connection to the history
     memory and request an installation of the rest of the Naiad

-    Checkpoint the activation state of all the methods in the control

-    Run the unit tests for the arbitrary thing in the control memory
     that you want to keep.

-    Dissolve everything else and snapshot.

     thanks again,
