Nemesis State

A primitive form of the Nemesis kernel, Nematode, has been implemented on DECstation 5000 [.hyden:thesis.]; this provides domains, events, and scheduling support. Currently Nematode is being evolved to conform to the machine independent interfaces defined for the Nemesis kernel.

The VM model and communications abstraction are adopted from those used for Wanda [.dixon:thesis.]; migration of this code awaits completion of the Nemesis kernel.
