your change set contains the class EtoysProject with

EtoysProject selectors

#(#finalEnterActions: #restoreGlobalPreferences #saveGlobalPreferences
#initializeProjectPreferences #configureOnFirstEntry

For complete configuration of a EtoysProject it might be necessary to do

     PasteUpMorph subclass: EtoysPasteUpMorph

as well.  http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6461

Then Etoys related methods may be pushed down to EtoysPasteUpMorph.
And probably an Etoys specific subclass of WorldMenu would be fine as well

there is a test project [2] and some more information about adaptions
needed because of the UI changes in the thread 'Etoys in 2017?' - UI
preferences [3]. And it would be good to have Etoys methods /
configuration separate  [4].

I suggest that you start go ahead and start implementing this while
using a test Etoys project dropped onto the desktop.

"I think it would be great if both Etoys and Scratch were easily
loadable and unloadable in trunk."
