The last word on Metacello, that I recall reading in this list, is that 
it is an experiment. Has that changed? I'm happy enough to changed my 
habits, if that is the case.

In this case, my build script was loading Albatross, which had the 
dependency on FFI (so I was not directly interested in FFI). The script 
I had was pieced together somehow, long ago, and was using #loadFFI, 
which worked fine until a few days ago.

BTW, since all FFI-Examples packages were removed from the FFI 
repository, even Metacello "versions" would fail because the package is 
no longer there.
