A VM is possible, but see the other recent notes on what probably
needs to happen first, in particular Marius' (and my) recent mails
about the macro system, module system cleanups, etc.

One thing you might want to check out is ice-9/safe.scm if you haven't
looked at it yet.  It's not what you're talking about above, but it
does allow you to create environments where it's supposed to be safe
to eval random-untrusted-code and have very careful control over what
it could possibly do.
