Hi everyone,

things go on much slower than I expected but still, today (after another 2 
full days of debugging...) I have made another step towards the new 
AosPlugin Version.

have now
- changed the Bootlinker such, that Modules can be protected objects now
- changed the Modules.Module to be a protected object -> GC works now like 
in AosHeap, Kernel is now very similar to AosHeap
- Modules and Module loader are seperated leading to Modules being _beyond_ 
the file system (like in Aos)
- mountable file system are partially working but module loader is still 
working on local files only (maybe never change that)

next steps are
- replace Win32.Kernel by Win32.AosHeap
- rename Modules -> AosModules, insert new Modules module
- insert new Win32.Kernel
- check for insert of critical sections
as far as I can see, these steps are more or less technical.

general goal is : having a AOS/Bluebottle-like system with Oberon running 
on Top as seperate process

feasibility assessment: realistic (if you would have asked me yesterday in 
the evening, I would have answered: impossible....)

with best wishes fot the weekend
