==== Description: ====
Viua VM is virtual machine (as in "runtime environment"); something similar to
a JVM, or the interpreter software at the heart of languages like Python,
Ruby, or Lua. Differently from the mentioned VMs, though, Viua does not ship
with a high-lever language front-end accompanying it.

Design of the VM goals are: predictability of program execution and resource
usage (think RAII), concurrency, fine-grained control over software behaviour,
and error-tolerancy. To achieve these goals, Viua provides a sort of
"high-level assembly" to program the VM (it can also be targeted by compilers
and other tools) giving programmers ultimate control over their software, and
yet providing much of the tooling one would expect from modern ennvironment.

Some notable features of the VM are: nonblocking calls to foreign functions
(offloaded to a special scheduler), message passing between VM-internal
processes, separate compilation of bytecode modules, exception-based error
handling (with semi-automatic process restarting), static and dynamic dispatch
of functions, inter-function tail-calls for programs running on VM.

The implementation language is C++14 (as supported by latest GCC).
