[etoys-dev] FFI on Etoys dev image

I'm currently using FFI in PhysicalEtoys to talk to the avr programmer and
upload programs to the arduino board. This used to work well in the previous
etoys-dev image. I could use the old image without problems but the thing
is: now I'm trying to generate arduino programs from smalltalk code and,
because of the experiments I'm doing, I need some of the compiler's new
stuff (such as Pragmas... well, they're not actually new but the old Etoys
image doesn't have them). Also, now that I learned to use Monticello I very
much like using the latest image :)

For now, I'm using the squeak image to develop this stuff. Maybe by the time
I finish working on this, Etoys would be a package on top of Squeak and we
will all be happy :)
