I like the concept :-). Actually I am developing in Java (this is the
project's page: http://yamamap.wiki.sourceforge.net/) so it will not be
easy to interface with the kernel. I will have to write a JNI wrapper
library at least. It would be too early now, but later I will consider
to use this technology. The knowledge will be handy in other projects as

The system that was dumped by Werner Almesberger uses a bit more memory
(ceratinly we don't know what application he was using :-)).
I could summarize that planning with use of 40-60M of memory seems not
to be too optimistic.
Thanks for all replies!
