I meant classify all code in the Etoys image into packages, same names as in trunk.

Then we have two sets of packages - the ones in trunk and the ones in the Etoys image, so we can easily compare them. Then we can gradually modify the Etoys-image packages so they become more like those in the trunk. At the same time, fixes done in Etoys would be applied to the trunk. In the end, the packages will be the same, and we're done.
