Description:


DO NOT DIRECTLY REFER TO THIS CLASS OR USE IT OTHERWISE IN YOUR CODE:

This is a dummy, mimicry class to allow some squeak code to be filed in.
Its protocol is neither complete, nor fully compatible with the corresponding
squeak original class.
ALSO: be aware, that this PackageInfo class does not know much about how ST/X
organizes its extensions. So NEVER EVER think about using it to get pacakgeInfo
on ST/X packages. It is only present to support porting Squeak tools, which
read Squeak packages (i.e. code importer packages).
One such being the monticello framework.

o  hash
(comment from inherited method)
return an Integer useful as a hash key for the receiver.
This hash should return same values for objects with same
