Hi Michael,

There are some really talented people doing some of this now.  See: 


But what is even more exciting to me is the Strongtalk VM.  The guys that
wrote the Java VM first wrote Strongtalk.  Sun shelved it but recently
released the VM as Open Source.  What I would like to see is a Strongtalk VM
for Squeak!
