Ok, good to know. Thanks.

Well, I do not really care about the interpreter VM itself, I just want to avoid unnecessary Cog/StackVM specific changes (like the heartbeat thread).
In the end, I want to run on both cores of the iPad, with the RoarVM.
That is the goal, and we have a proof of concept that works, but it is an unsustainable mess and needs to get integrated into our mainline of code.

Any hits on which code-base to chose for that are very welcome.

My main platforms I want to run on are Linux, OSX, and iOS. And ideally without any code duplication, since we have to touch some details here and there.
Well, and as I said, ideally in a way that I can pull in upstream changes.
