  Apparently, the image distributed from the Japanese site has default
setting to use http://squeakland.jp/super and they get a few
submissions per week or so.

  But since they also have http://squeakland.jp/super2 that uses
SuperSwiki2, and Umezawa-san is already getting ready to work on the
png support, we don't have to be concerned about upsetting the old
super swiki server there.

  I probably can run it on my computer and see what happens.

  Kathleen, having a self-contained one file has advantage so we think
it is generally a good idea to move toward this direction.  It would
be nice if Michael McKelvey can add a few lines to his code so that
both cases will be supported.
