It did last July ... but dunno about now or current CVS .. See attached
chatlog I had with the guy who tested it on his embedded linux ARM palmtop.

Pnet ran a hello world 10k stack and 200k heap  (for IL) with a full 
build then .. should be a lot smaller for a trimmed down build ...

If libffi does not work in ARM ... PInvoke is out of the way... Still
someone can write a new ilrun.c embedding QT as a set of internal calls.
And avoid the hassle of porting libffi ...

This is more relevant now that the ilinternal tool can generate the
correct marshalling code with C , rather than depend on libffi support.
And we can attach internal call tables to the engine at runtime as well..

Pnet has a JIT ... but not a native JIT ... pnet JITs IL into a simpler
non-polymorphic code called CVM ... Which is a lot faster to run than
the direct IL interpreters ...

Hmm.... maybe someone should fix the pnetlib/profiles/tiny section 
to actually work :-)

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
