Funny you should mention that. This is something I am actually working 
on in my spare time. I do have the outline for a Squeak application 
bundle that stores binary representations of code (so that the image 
does not require a Compiler; in fact I want to be able to use that to 
load one ;-) and optionally, source code. It's nicely small and fast so 
far (the entirety of Morphic goes into 700k and takes less than a second 
to load) but the work's only just started so there is a long ways to go 
here. If someone is seriously interesting in this direction, drop me a note.
