We have been discussing this with Esteban last Monday. Indeed, there is
something that does not work.
With PackageInfo or whatever (before RPackage) you used to have a package
and categories.
So for example, the *Monticello* *package* Fuel has several *categories*:
Fuel-Clusters, Fuel-Collections, Fuel-Errors, etc.

*packages*as well.

So... I can get the RPackage for each of those categories:

(RPackageOrganizer default packageNamed: 'Fuel-Clusters') classes -> ok
(RPackageOrganizer default packageNamed: 'Fuel-Collections') classes -> ok

The problem is that so far you *cannot* get a RPackage representing a
Monticello package. This is because a Monticello package could be
represented as a *list* of RPackages.
How do I get the classes of the monticello package Fuel?
(RPackageOrganizer default packageNamed: 'Fuel') classes   -> does not work

The problem is that 'Fuel' is considered as an individual RPackage (just as
Fuel-Clusters, Fuel-Collections, etc). This problem is that

MCPackage >> correspondingRPackage

    | symbol |
    symbol := Symbol readFromString: '#', self name.
    ^ RPackageOrganizer default packageNamed: symbol ifAbsent: [ nil ]

answers *one* RPackage where actually should be a list. So for example for
the MCPackage of 'Fuel' I should get a list of all RPackages
(Fuel-Clusters, Fuel-Collections, etc). Then I can do the inject:into or
whatever if I want to ask/calculate sutff (like #classes and
