plus, SqueakMap has a functional web front-end that make it easy to look 
for existing packages, see what's there and what it does.

in my experience SqueakSource is very opaque and next to impossible to 
navigate: you only have a huge projects list strangely sorted taking 99 
pages, and a list of tags somewhat more useful but still very clumsy to 

so, long live SqueakMap, and if it has to be deprecated, let it be 
deprecated by something better, not just something else.

(my rant now: again an occurrence of this silly "my stuff is better than 
yours, yours should die" shit... when will people learn to respect 
other's ways ?)
