Hmm, if it's stripped down a bit, it might fit nicely in the loader,
replacing that 40k libficl mess..  ;)

I suppose I could volunteer for this.  I've been dissecting the loader for
months now and hitting the 4th "fence" has been bothersome..  As far as
braving those pesky naysayers, I thought about doing it on my own anyway so
if no one wants the change, I'll just keep it for my own systems.  =)

If nothing else, I'm very curious to see how small I can get a Scheme
