Isn't a problem at all, at least as you don't save both images because
the share the changes files.
> I mentioned caveats: I have mixed feelings about Pharo's emulated/MDI GUI. There have been (rare) times when it would have been nice to be able to do something similar on Dolphin. If there is a reason to run multiple IDEs on one box, having them clearly separated by a single main window has some advantages.
By exploting this feature, you can launch a lot of running images from
the same disk image and, as long as you don't save them, you can, for
example, scale Seaside applications.
