I'm just trying to understand what are we trying to do here.

1. A Lisp-Machine (a full featured Lisp based OS, with
   classic OS structure: file-system, network ....),
   running directly on some hardware, or lying on top
   of some kernel.

2. A Virtual Lisp Machine, running on top of existing
   OS and hardware.

   substituting persistent objects to file system and so on ...
