I hate to say this but I pretty much forgot what I did here -- even 
that I did it -- and certainly did forget this link (life has been 
complicated the last 2 years ...). This is actually a pretty good 
start at some of the things that Jerry wants and needs. I think the 
reason that I didn't link this up is that I didn't get done with the 
general stuff and didn't hand it off to anyone else .. then it got 
forgotten. But, it's on a swiki so it is open to be added to and 
changed for the better ... Maybe we should link this into the 
squeakland.org site even in its unfinished state and hope someone 
(perhaps with the energy of Sebastian's students) will add to it.
