I believe that Igor (CCed) is still on this list, although I don't know if he
keeps up with it. He does pop up on the Pharo lists from time :-)

I would be interested to know if there were some general conclusions from the
Hydra VM work. Did this prove to be a productive direction that should be
pursued further?

A lot has changed in the world of computing since Igor created Hydra VM. I wonder
if it was a project just a few years ahead of its time.
