Thanks. Being able to interrogate what Metacello found via tha API would 
be great... ;-) Then I dont have to rely on my interpretation of the 
code in someone else's BaselineOf/ConfigurationOf. That code can be 
structured in multiple ways and cater for all kinds of advanced corner 
cases. It would be nice not to have to read it...and thus to have had to 
master a bigger chunk of the learning curve of Metacello just to be able 
to pull in (possibly complex) projects of others.
