Yes, I prefer Monticello mcm files. With support for config files 
referencing other config files I will be able to form any list, nested. 
I really do not have much affinity for Metacello classes and the various 
#baselineOf... and #configurationOf... methods and package classes. It 
is much complexity and I get confused. I prefer a straightforward list 
as a single artifact.

K, r

PS. I would really like a Gradle analog in Smalltalk. Then with 
conditional loading rules, we could specify any target build.
