+ MetacelloStub is a loose reference to the class Metacello in its host repository.  It's kept at both its real name, #MetacelloStub, as well as the name #Metacello.  This is done to allow Squeak to respond to messages sent to Metacello (e.g., as referenced in external installation scripts), without the need to ship with Metacello pre-installed.!
