Maybe the background loader with preview
(25-Apr-2004 tested in Squeak 3.7)
could be lifted to Squeak 4.1
This would involve a re-release under an MIT license, i.e. committed
to the inbox.
Steve Wessels tested two of his games successfully in Squeak 4.1
P.S. I bcc this email to Steve.
may I ask you to have a look at the thread on the Squeaklist about
changing the background in Squeak.
I cc this email because you invite for feedback on your website
