[Help-smalltalk] Small proposal for packages

I just want to present some small extensions for packages:

1. Add extra meta information

A short description of the package, url of the project, and an icon
these points would
be useful for an ui in VisualGST. I would like to make the difference between
prereq packages and sub packages for instance Iliad would have iliad-more-....
has a subpackage and swazoo has prereq.

2. Virtual packages

A virtual package would only contains prereq packages and
sub packages. for instance It will be usefull for ui if you search
iliad it will display iliad with priority and the other sub packages

3. add a reload message ;-)

4. Load order

Something that's annoying with big packages is that we should
put the files ordered with the inheritance order. A solution
is too to a pass on the package and generate the right file loading
order. But things remain complicated when you inherit from external
packages and the other. All the suggestions/ideas are welcome ;)

5. Atomic loading ???
