You can make any variable act like a port by providing a few methods and mixing
in the port-mixin module. Remember however that a port is something that you can
read characters from or write characters to.

Not yet. Serialization and Threading are still to be done. I don't know if
serialization is possible anyway. A WebScheme program can be seen as a directed
graph, the vertices (points) being storage locations (say variables). To
serialize an object you need to send all data along that is reachable using a
directed path from the object vertex. That's an awful lot of data.

What DotGNU runtime? It will be hookable into DGEE the VM way. It won't be
attached to ilrun since it doesn't compile to IL.
