Well hey I'm just the guy tapping the compile button, er no support agreement here...
Likely the original plugin code came via
If someone wants to make the required fixes to the plugin code, and the smalltalk code I *think* I can build a new plugin.. Likely this won't affect Sophie users (if any) because that's a one click app. However this means an update to the mac vm's and other platforms in order to ensure the smalltalk class in a Pharo image matches expectations.

Also remove the unused *Index class vars. Now that there are plugins in the wild, hard-coding the indices is a good idea anyway. During development, the flexible generator version was useful, but not anymore.
