Indeed. Currently we're customizing the image by loading a Monticello
repository worth of code. Previously we had a lot of media (sound,
images, etc) living in a custom image but that's moved into the
project files now. Later we'll want to be a bit clever about on-disk
sharing of common bitmaps, soundclips, etc and I don't know how yet
(I'm sniffing around objectForDataStream: and comeFullyUpOnReload: as
possible hooks - sounds fruitful?)

I think that we need to get into the same room as an Etoys guru as
soon as we can. My experience is that Etoys skills such as we have so
far are very fast and easy to pass on face-to-face. I suppose that
webcasts are a great hope for scaling this up :-)
