No worries, Volkert. There will not be a fork in the road. In my idea it 
would be two parallel lanes. One stable branch that gets full 
documentation, bug tracker and fixes, well organized source code. And a 
development branch for all the new thingies.
It would never be a Minix/Linux case.

I guess ETHZ lost interest in second generation languages like Pascal, 
Modula, Oberon.

PdW's emulator plays a key role. It converts a single platform compiled 
language into a multi platform interpreted language. A kind of Java.
