Poking around in the latest Spur64VMMaker, I found a previous attempt by 
tty and eem to develop a SimulatorMorph for StackInterpreter. It appears 
to be abandoned and a simpler morph (openAsMorph) is being used for 

Possibly because of its complexity in trying to combine two separate 
morphs - vm controller and vm console into one window. Having them 
separate would have been easier as the vm console morph is dynamic in 
size and contents.

Thanks to all those who responded to my queries. I found a lot of good 
stuff already in Morphic. Form>>hackBits: wraps a form around bits in a 
byte array. OLPCVirtualScreen, OLPCVirtualSensor show virtualization of 
display and input.

I wish there was a Help->Morphic Classes - a guide through the various 
concepts illustrated by Morphs that is kept in sync with each update. An 
in-image guide with live links will be easier to read and simpler to 
keep in sync than Swiki pages.
