and in Morph>>isTileScriptingElement. Both seem to be results of 
monkey-patching (understandable in research experiments).

Wouldn't a better idea be to subclass EtoysMorph (Morph) and EtoysWorld 
(PasteUp) and move such methods into them? Like in EtoysPresenter?

This will require a one-time effort in changing base Etoys class defs 
and methods. But this one-time change will payoff in terms of cleaner 
separation between Morphic and Etoys.

Would this be too risky a change for 5.2 release?
