What VMMaker version does that correspond to?

I see significant differences (for instance, in interp.c and in the 
LargeIntegersPlugin) between the sources generated from VMMaker-tpr.5.mcz (30 
Mar 2004) on SqueakSource (repository at http://kilana.unibe.ch:8888/VMMaker) 
and the generated sources in your src directory.

Where is the Squeak source code available if someone wants to work on the VM? 
I can't find it on SVN or in your tarball.

In my opinion, this is why the VMMaker sources (the Squeak code, possibly in 
MCZ format) should be versioned along with the C sources in SVN.

BTW, it works fine to read MCZ files directly from the SVN repository; commits 
would be done in the usual way (save the mcz to the working directory and do 
a commit).

Attached are the diffs I found.
