I don't know how closely it corresponds to your needs, but Forth systems
go to some effort to minimise the number of hand-written primitives, and
are quite VM-like. You could look at maf & paf (model ANS Forth systems
with near-minimal primitives): see


(the version numbers have probably changed by now).
