[Pharo-project] A radical proposal (to cut down dead code)

Dead code in the development image is not a serious problem. They may be used
by specific applications.

What is desirable is to remove dead code from application images that are
ready for distribution. VisualWorks has RuntimePackager to strip the
application image before distribution. Pharo should have something like
that.

The alternative is to build an application by importing needed code into a
bare bone image. Is Spoon trying to do this?

All the best,
Aik-Siong Koh
