Sounds nice, but we don't have it yet. So please let's keep the menu
entries around in the meantime. (Side note: can we please include a
function to mostly autogenerate a SqueakMap entry for a
GitHub/Metacello-based project in the new or old tools?)

How are you supposed to tell a so-called newcomer how to install your
GitHub-based project today? Go to help extending the system find the piece
of text that reads Installer ensureRecentMetacello mark it open the context
menu click do it blah blah blah. When all they would need to do is click on
a menu entry from the docking bar.
