Actually, on digging I found we have etoys and squeak-vm in Ubuntu, in
multiverse - which is the "non-free" repository:
In this state it's not distributable on official Ubuntu CDs, such as
the Edubuntu CD, but it's easily installable.
We'll work on fixing the "non-free" status in the next Ubuntu release
cycle, if possible...
