I can give you all the Monticello package list, but is it relevant? I
hardly know 10% of them. Some should probably belong to core other not.

I don't understand: with times new important tools were developed, like
Nautilus and other I don't know I guess. Was it decided these tools
should be carved in the image or be loaded? Was not removing old tools
and using new loadable ones the way to build step by step this core image?
I confess I very likely don't see the subtle details.

Is it really a resource problem?
With my scarce resources and knowledge I can build automatically drgeo
with a bash script and a .st file since 1.x for several platform. I
agree it is more complex with Pharo but...
