No, the problem here is one shared by many not familiar with Squeak in
depth. We are refering to two closely related but separate things by
the name 'eToys'. One is a collection of classes and collateral data
that is, in some form, distributed as part of the current Squeak core
releases. The second, and the one relevant here, is a distribution of
Squeak with modifications and additions to the eToys software and setup
for educational purposes. This is distributed via squeakland.org and
perhaps other locations.
