Can you offer any guidance on this?

I have not looked at this in any detail, but it look like the
Alien-VMMaker-Support package could potentially be merged into VMMaker
(assuming MIT license for those changes), and the remainder of the
Alien on SqueakSource should be maintained as a separate package,
as is already the case.

I have not tried building the Alien support, but I appears that for
32-bit Intel platforms it would be a matter of building the plugin
from sources in Alien-VMMaker-Plugins. The remainder would be image
changes to be loaded from the remaining packages in Alien from your
SqueakSource project.

Is that correct?
