Seeing it in the trunk repo has to do with a bug in its cache-handling,
which should be fixed by Monticello-cmm.707.

Yes, Squeak does things a little differently.  MC's ancestry is an
integrated structure, with a resource demand similar to a public
blockchain.  Therefore, especially for the base system packages, emphasis
should be placed on keeping this permanently archived artifact as compact
as possible.  Thanks for your understanding.   :)
