The mode of operation in this version is that OBP talks to a hypervisor, it 
does not access hardware directly. So for example the low level code could 
be used in making OpenBIOS run on top of the hypervisor, but would this be 
useful? Higher level code could be used elsewhere, but I'm no Forth expert.

The hypervisor sources are very Niagara-specific.

Actually I don't know what to do with this otherwise very nice package.
