Hi Juan,

This fells awesome. I am thinking about the Dynabook softwre, to have 
multiple images executed, for example to isolate in its own image end 
user experimentation and execution without taking the risk to have the 
whole system to fall down. I remember Philip suggested that approach a 
while ago.


Inter-image communication should still have to be considered though.
