>     What version of Squeak is etoys.image based on?

  I'd like to try it tomorrow, but the short answer here is that it is
based on the mainstream Squeak3.8-6665, with a lot of changes around
UI and the tile scripting system.  I don't think there is a
significant change since then.  (But there are a few issues around FFI
and it is basically left unfixed, and the compilers treatment around
nil in the literal array has changed, etc.

  The chances are very slim^^;  Getting FFI going in the Etoys image
would be simpler.
