Jecel Assumpcao Jr. is working on a quite similar project. He is
putting Neo Smalltalk  on a 9-core Plurion  processor. He
has said he will follow this up with a port of Spoon. More
information can be found on his hardware Swiki .
I'll be working with him on this project as part of my graduate studies.
