      Hmmm- I've been lurking around parrot for a while (being a ruby type bod). Really glad to see the directions that things are going in at the moment, and I really appreciate seing so much documentation of what Parrot is trying to do (Ok, so I am in telecoms!).

      So a couple of comments:

      1. Users Sam, Rasmus, Matz etc are important. A good VM model will last forever (or nearly so).

      2. While I'd claim to be a User Matz type, I am also a User Tom. While I do try and keep up with the design docs, I have not been involved with development (although I have read parts of the source code). I am interested in the lightest weight sustainable subset of Parrot that I can find. I want to have a minimal Parrot, and I want to be able to keep it very well integrated to an OS kernel.

      Best regards
