Wasn't the "Art of MOP" all about CLOS? It might not be system level
reflection like Tunes, Merlin or Apertos but it sounds to me
like an excelent start (I have never used it myself, so I am
guessing). With a little imagination, CLOS MOP might let you
turn LispOS into a reflective OS without the others even noticing
it :-)

BTW, I am in the lispos mailing list, but none of the messages I
send seem to make it there (I confirmed this by checking the
web pages). I don't get any errors either.
