Well that's fun to explore. I'm on OSX 10.7.5 and for some reason the 
AppleScript could not see the image, but that was easy to fix by 
dragging the script into the same/Resources directory.
The mini image starts and is broadcasting on 8090. It sets up a web page 
to present a link to start the development image. Nifty.
For the first time HTTPServer is publicly available. It's in the mini 
image, which I can inspect from the open browser on the development 
image world.  Going to package New and then class Welcome and method 
'act' I can see where the web page is coming from. Cool.
