Hi Robert,

An MCConfiguration (aka MCM file) is a simple specification of a set of
Monticello package versions. It serves as a checkpoint specification in
an update stream, such as the Squeak trunk update stream. It is not intended
to support dependency management.

Metacello is designed to support more complex configuration specifications.
If a configuration cannot be clearly specified with an MCM configuration map,
then it is probably time to use Metacello to address the issue.
