In my 5.3-18694 image it actually gets listed in the Tools menu as just 'Metacello'. Now, if it were the case that the first time you used it the metacello stuff were installed and thereafter some tool opened, that would be ok. But that isn't what seems to happen; choosse that option again and you get to install metacello again. That seems a poor choice to have in a menu that is basically for opening tools.

Yeah. Especially one that doesn't load properly from SM despite that being the only load-path I was able to google. There has to be a better way of finding stuff, surely.
