Ok let us know.
Your goal is to have ToolBuilder shared between Pharo and Squeak?
We should pay attention because we want to be able not to be backwards compatible but we can try.

I don't really like those very much (after all UIManager is all about asking users for information); is there really no better place in Pharo to put these? I can kind of see why one would stick some of those into UIManager if there is absolutely no other place but ... is there?
