So it stops being a virtual environment if you run Java or Python in it?  (or 
anything else that uses bytecode?)

Or if I get one of those old Rockwell Java processors (or a Dallas 
semiconductor Java iButton, or an ARM processor with a J in it) and make a 
coprocessor out of it (I dunno, plug it into the USB port and send code to 
it), I now have a virtual Java environment because the bytecode is running on 
real hardware?
