VMMaker is never, ever, ever, meant for any one platform.
I build VMMaker on my RISC OS machine, test it as much as I can and
release a version to the main port team. If I get no complaints I put
it on SM. As we move ahead there tend to be periods where the public
version and development version(s) get out of step but really, what
else could one expect? At some point we will almost certainly be doing
an atomic blast change that will mean having to have new VMS and images
that match. It isn't possible (or practical) to do everything
completely backward compatibly. We're probably going to move everything
over to java syntax soon.
