This is where I'm heading with pnet.  Each of the major
components will be pluggable eventually.

I am at all this week, and I will be giving
a presentation on Portable.NET later in the week.  The
following is one of the diagrams I'll be using to describe
how new bytecode formats can be plugged into the
front of pnet:

It also shows where the different kinds of coders (CVM
and JIT) fit into the picture.

I'm gradually collecting up all my notes and scribblings
from the last few months.  Eventually it will turn into a
big "HACKING" file for the VM, describing how to add
interesting new things, and how the whole engine works.
