I was thinking these days that the time may have come to drop requirement
of this 2-steps start.

In particular, loading a movie to _level0 has the special effect
of resizing the stage, so that stage size doesn't need to be known
in advance. Also, do we really need version at the start ? What for,
if everytime we run a piece of AS we set the version dinamically ?

I suggest looking at the possibility of this before going further.
It'd simplify the scenario, which is always good when planning
a refactoring (would also fix the unaesthetic grey-box startup blocking).
