Yes, yes, yes!

I'd like to work in an image which can be snapshotted.  This saves a great
deal of time.  But I need a way to reconstruct everything everytime.  I
like the idea of workspaces (or project layers or environment whatever)
which can share some objects but cannot modify itself.  You might even use
this for multiuser access rights. I also really like to be able to
bootstrap a Self-image from nearly nothing (my system doesn't have mirrors,
so I need only the lobby with nil, true, false to be hardcoded in the VM).
