It is, in the sense that (last time I checked at least), Metacello
doesn't separate the defining of the structure of something and
locating that thing.

If I may use Maven or Leiningen as an example, a pom.xml or
project.clj file only defines the logical structure of something. You
don't ever say "and this is where you get this" except in profiles,
which are independent of the project specification.

But in the sense of "PetitParser's ConfigurationOf's #common stanza is
a bit broken", it's not a Metacello issue, but an absent owner issue.
When I've sent Lukas fixes before he's told me quite clearly that I
should be sending them to the Pharo list, but... who's going to
actually review/apply/reject this fix?
