So I was reading the complains from Sven and got Inspiration from Torsten
Pharo image and CUIs and made me wonder what if we had an image which has
the least amount of libraries and every library inside it is full commented
in class, package and method and even has tutorial using inside help tool.

So I think I will give this project a try. I know there is a plan to make
pharo image more modular, but modularity does not equal minimalism ,
simplicity and ease of use.

I think I will follow the CUIs example and do the development via Github.

But I am open to ideas and suggestions.

My intention is to remove the excess fat, to make Pharo prettier (improve
theme support and make available several themes ) and to have everything
commented and self documented.

Obviously this will be a long term project and in no way a walk in the park
but I was looking for a nice project to name "Ephestos" :D seem as good as
any
