Yes. Absolutely, 100%, yes. If that is *actually* an issue (which it has 
never been in the past) I'd be happy to include the VMMaker MCZ that was 
used in the source release.

The thing that I *don't* want is to ship versions of VMs where an 
end-user needs to figure out whether she is going to use 
"SqueakVM-Win32-ar.467" or "SqueakVM-Win32-dtl.468". These numbering 
schemes make no sense whatseover outside of this tiny community.

I like schemes that are roughly in sync with the image release. That way 
a user who has a Squeak-3.5 image has a chance to figure out that in 
order to run it they probably need a Squeak-3.5.x VM.
