I think I understand now that when I open a normal Etoys image, the first
playfield that I see (with the car driving around) is just a normal project.

Is that initial project available as a *.pr file, or on a web site? I am
interested in figuring out how to load it into our trunk Squeak (maybe
not from a file though, perhaps it could be an initialization method).

I'm not quite sure how it would work, but I am thinking that when opening
a new EtoysProject from a "not-Etoys" environment, we could load the intial
welcome project if it had not previously been loaded.
