Thanks for bringing this up.  I noticed this one too and spent an hour or two working on it but never sent along my changes... maybe because I had some of the same questions.

Yes, I think so.  That meshes with the other users of this system within the image.

Good call.  It seems that without this URL being live on the internet, the remote-font-loading-for-locale-switching won't work (Locale class>>#switchAndInstallFontToID:gently:)

We can change the URL to https://web.archive.org/web/20161219105306/http://metatoys.org:80/pub/

...or provide the necessary files on files.squeak.org.

We can also rewrite the test so it does not hardcode the URL but rather takes its URL from LanguageEnvironment>>#fontDownloadUrls 

However, I have to ask:  was this remote-font-loading system affected by the font system refurbishment during the Squeak license change?  Is this remote-font-loading-for-locale-switching system still relevant?
