    I hope not, the bug-fix and corner case competition is doing good thing
    for VM in both directions. That's healthy.

    What I would like to see is VM moved to a module so you could have
    either, or any of several competing designs which would be bound to
    emerge once there's a neat interface and you can write to that instead
    of trying to understand and hack all the stuff needed now. The effort is
    high and the chance for problems high as well right now, in other words
    a high ratio of implementation to method expertise.

    I also would love to see the dispatcher moved to a module, so people can
    easily play with ideas like the idle process, integrating VM and
    dispatch operation at high memory load, etc.

    Right now you not only need to understand the topic, but the
    implementation. The implementation could be made easier with a clean
    interface and an easy way to load changes for test without compiling a

    Yes, I'm still beating the drum for those modules.
