   I may be talking through my hat here, but it seems plausible to me
   to support a mini-unix environment *within* our lisp universe, but
   keep it isolated from the world that we're running.  What I imagine
   is a subsystem which can run ELF binaries in their own protected

Oooh, good idea.  The Cygnus GNU-Win32 library
( does this for UNIX under
Windows NT and 95.  The task would be somewhat easier in SilkOS, since
we could build it upwards rather than downwards.
