I think emulation should not be mentioned in the "goals" section -- is our
goal to build something that emulates (whatever other OS we want), or is
our goal to build a Lisp Operating System?

Wherever emulation is mentioned, I believe it should be mentioned as a
possibility and not as a definite outcome, and that Windows should not be
mentioned as an emulation target.  (If anything, I think the statement
should be very general:  "This operating system may also be capable of
running binaries for other popular platforms, if appropriate emulation
technology is developed.")
