What about making them into Linux kernel threads, and making beam known
as an executeable format to the kernel?

I believe something like that was done with Java a long time ago,
but maybe this was only some special case of shebang (#!/path/to/interpreter)


The UNIX equivalent of the "Blue Screen of Death" would be called
"kernel panic". It obviously exists, since I have heard and read about it,
but I've never been witness to it in my professional career.
