That would be interesting, but you still need something running the Erlang code
that runs the new BEAM VM? Or does the bootstrapping trick work in this case
too? Doesn't one need machine code generation for that? (I mean an interpreted
VM engine would probably be too slow for industrial use - but it might be a very
useful learning tool).
