  The way I see non-XO image ("Squeakland-OLPC") is 6 months/12 months
release cycle with virtually no update between releases.  It
synchronizes with Etoys for XO ("OLPC Etoys"), which presumably have
the incremental, long tail nature of translation.

  Still, it is true that external MO are ok in that setting.  Adding a
second or so to the start up time is not that terrible.
