This idea still seems to me to be a good tradeoff between what is
possible, what is desirable, and what is needed in order to have a
usable system during development.  I think this approach could be be
especially flexible with a microkernel Unix (e.g. MkLinux and Hurd).

Maybe I'm the only one that has never used Genera, or for that matter
any Lisp Machine, but I know any technical documentation, old source
code, or design papers would be a welcome resource.
