You misunderstood Roland.  OSKit already has support to run OSKit based
kernels on top of Unix.

See the following picture and comment on the OSKit homepage.


"The OSKit used on bare hardware (left) and emulated under Unix (right). The
Unix emulation code replaces the kernel support and device drivers, allowing
the same OSKit kernel to run as a process on a Unix system. The shaded
components are the parts of the OSKit that differ in the two environments."
