Subject Re: Rebooting the Harmony project

Regarding my previous questions about what could be done with the
bits:
http://harmony.markmail.org/search/?q=p_j_anderson%40volny.cz

Can Harmony's VM be made into something that won't infringe any
patents, implements a widely-supported flavour of bytecode, and can
run some useful languages - and can be a base for a better C#/Java
type language in the future? Will Harmony's existing class library
implementation be useful as a temporary base to do this?

As an optimist I'd love to know that something even *better* than a
JVM would come out of Harmony as a result of all this.
