Hi Stéph,

    why not implement a tool that takes a package, asks the user to
identify the most important class comment, and the creates comments
for all uncommented classes in the package that direct the user to the
most important class comment?  The generated comment could use the
squeak code hyperlink support so the user just has to double click in
the generated comment to get to the new comment.  How about also
including in the comment template a suggestion of what kind of
entry-point documentation you'd like to see?
