0006558: Integer>>hex8 has disappeared from image
VMMaker's InterpreterSimulator makes great use of Integer>>hex8 for printing various memory dumps, but this method was deprecated in 3.8 and removed in 3.9. Integer>>hex was re-introduced into the 3.10 image in, [^] so perhaps this should be as well.

However, due to the senders of this method (only InterpreterSimulator that I know of), perhaps this method should be changed to hexWord, and print either a 8-digit or 16-digit string, depending on whether the image is 32-bit or 64-bit, respectively. Attached are change sets and tests for both methods.
