[squeak-dev] Installing OmniBrowser

I’m exploring SmaCC, which requires the Refactory. This sent me down several paths to try and install it. Extending The System’s script doesn’t work. [1] I tried a SqueakMap script using Colin’s last version [2] and it gives the same result, because it’s the same script. [1] 
After finding that ConfigurationOfOmniBrowser has #version1241:, I realized I just needed to understand Metacello a little better to install OB and RB. Trial and error lead me to a script [3]. Clearly other people are doing this. Perhaps one of those people could take a look at my script and see if it could use improvement, as compared to their version. I imagine that ultimately Extending The System could be updated with a script that works.
