> 1) Group 1 develop a high level virtual machine tailored
>    to dynamic languages in general, and lisp/scheme in
>    particular.  It would support web or agent based computing,
>    and allow some form of JIT translation of Java (without
>    necessarily needing to be a superset of the JVM).

We would like to participate in this group. When do we start?

> 2) Group 2 would begin development of a running lispOS.  Using
>    an existing virtual machine based Common Lisp implemetation,
>    they would strap this directly on the new version of the
>    Flux toolkit (due in May).  This group would track Group 1,
>    and evolve the lispOS to support the virtual machine developed
>    by the previous group.

We would love to share info with this group and get the benefit of their
new OS when it is ready.
