And RISC OS! :-) It *should* be easy enough to add to unix as well.  
There is nothing very difficult about it, mostly some cleaning up of  
vm apis to allow specifying a window handle instead of assuming a  
single window.

Absolutely. The original development testing was done with workspace  
doits to open windows, display in them, fetch events from them. John  
did some demo stuff to try to hook up individual project windows to  
host windows. I think it should be a case of hooking individual  
windows to host windows instead. Somebody with good knowledge of  
morphic would need to look at that. See http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/
