Me too - I never use full Pharo. I build the image I want from Core. If 
there were a suitable special purpose image built as outlined above, 
then that image would be my new starting point. If not, then I guess I 
would have to start from whatever Core+Dev image results from the 
process, and then unload stuff (or, if it isn't too big, use it as is).
