Isn't npetoysrun redundant in Etoys4.1 with its new launcher script? Why not 
update the plugin to launch it directly - say using ${NPSQUEAK_HOME:-
~/.npsqueak} as the Etoys.app location? I expect the majority of users to use 
the same image for local and remote projects.

If the paths are picked up from environment, then all these links may not be 
necessary.  Personally, I dislike dot pollution in $HOME for virtual machines 
like Etoys.
