I signed up. It told me my user name is "KassenOud", also subscribed to the
mailing list for this project.

I think so.

things I got questions about;

*MIDI out (the same as in, really, but it seems to confuse people).
*Static members of public classes as a way to share data and signals across
the whole VM
*me.yield() (this likely requires a discussion on the shreduler in some
depth, there is one in Ge's phd paper. I hope that stuff will be open for
re-use but right now it doesn't have a free/open licence).
*casting (should include a discussion on how to be safe about this).

Modest proposal;

*ending the manual with a note on how to report bugs. We have lots of those
yet I suspect too many people blame themselves for crashes (hint; if it
crashes the VM the VM is wrong).

Thanks for all the help!
Thanks for "taking point"
