My reply wasn't intended to be dismissive.  I'm short on details.  What 
platforms are you referring to?  Even a slow base VM can be an adequate 
bootstrap VM to create the initial Harmony install, and thereafter you use 

I suppose that for porting issues, a C-based bootstrap VM for platforms that 
don't have an existing VM could be used, but I think that would be more of a 
future project.  For now, I suspect that the primary target platforms for 
Harmony are those currently supported by Sun, primarily *nix and Windows, 
although I think we should definitely expand to include OS X, if that is 

Again, the project leads can probably say more about what the plan is there.
