Pharo totally bootstraps

Rather unnoticed but is now finally working:

Pharo images are now build from NOTHING. Not a single byte of image exists before: During build process, a very small image is first bootstrapped using a technique developed by Guille Polito during his PhD. Then the rest of the packages are loaded in a regular way.

This is how Pharo 7 (which is intended to be released around November) is now built!
