I use a naming convention for the conflicting start script names. The
64-bit Spur VM is /usr/local/bin/spur64, 32-bit Spur is /usr/local/bin/spur,
32-bit Cog is /usr/local/bin/cog. I install the interpreter VM without
renaming it, so it is /usr/local/bin/squeak. I then add a /usr/local/bin/run
script that selects a VM based on image format.

This is totally unofficial and recommended by nobody but me, but that's
what I do.
