Indeed. It was not designed to be used in such big scale as today. So,
it is not a bug, it is a feature (or lack of ;)
And as any other software it requires maintenance and upgrades to meet
today's requirements.

Is there a plan to provide a migration from squeaksource to new system?
Because if not, then i'm afraid, most people will keep using SqS
and imagine how many configs/wiki pages and other stuff needs to be updated.
I'd prefer to fully replace SqS with new system at some day without
need of migrating projects by all developers and updating
links/configs etc.
