  Hello, etoys list and squeak-dev list,

  This came up on the devel at laptop.org mailing list.  Does anybody on
this list want to show off what is hidden behind?

  Another idea we would like to try is to make a .xo file (an
executable file for the XO machine) with an image configured for full
development in Squeak.  (And also another one with DrGeo II and
BotsInc, etc. that could fill the gap between Etoys and Smalltalk.)

I'd love to see demo instructions for this on the wiki somewhere.
