Let's go camping!  I'm in the 3rd camp too.  I want a LispM that runs on
x86 boxes.  Now, maybe the way you get there is to first write on top of
Linux, or NT or whatever, as a frist step.  I'm not asserting an opinion of
*how* to get what I want, just *what* I want.  The design needs to be
careful at seperating hardware dependent cruft, so that it could be ported
to other hardware as easily as possible.
