Well, but then we can go as well with ErsatzLisp, the Java version of PicoLisp.

A full PicoLisp doesn't yet run on Windows, as PicoLisp needs a POSIX runtime
environment. Might be possible in the future with Joe's midipix port.

Aligning is not so much a problem. But can you control the stack layout,
condition codes (carry flag etc.) and multiple function entry points in
Powerbasic? Or do natice calls to external C functions in a completely dynamic
way. All this is not even possible in C.

Thanks for the feedback! Let's see what happens. For Ubuntu 17.04 it is probably
too late by now.
