This is something that I've been thinking too. The rumour says that it
would make one great JVM on top of the Crusoe, so why not EVM too? :)

I just wonder, if Transmeta would be interest in licencing it's technology
or Ericsson interest in developing such technology. Anyways, it would be
rather interesting if Crusoe could run X86 and Erlang simultaneusly on VLIW
core.
