I think it's going to go something like this.  We're going to have a  
handful of VM subprojects, a tools subproject, and a class library  
subproject, and people will vote with their feet.  I expect that in  
the longer term, we'll settle on one main VM effort as we take what  
we learn and focus on our "production" effort.  That said, given the  
sophistication of that VM, we'll have smaller, simpler VMs still  
around for learning and experimentation...

I expect it all to be harmonious and peaceful...
