That's a good idea, though squeaksource doesn't seem to be very reliable right
now and the guys have mentioned completely reworking it. Perhaps a semi-public
MC repo on hplab?

Hmm, I had the distinct impression he had things he wanted to do from various
emails. Not least was some mention of applying the equivalent fixes to make 2Gb

Oh and since you used the new VMMakerTool UI layout, was it reasonably logical
for you? And nobody responded on the issue I raised a while ago about pushing
this out as the official 3.8 VM package, with the implied requirement to get
some of the stuff into the 3.8 image RSN.
