yes, cookbooks would be nice. We also need simple, reliable, no
investigation, no fuss, low effort way to deploy most common forms of
smalltalk web app or pier blog. If you want fancy stuff you go for
recipes or forge one for yourself. But for most common cases it would
be great if it would be smooth and reliable.

We need distilled, reliable and maintained most common cases, and it
seems that this is also one of the goals of SmallHarbour.

It is like Linux and its distributions. Linux can be anything, which
is great, but distribution makes it much more usable in some domain.

just my 2 lipas,
