Not a wrapper; it's a Linux super-server, much in the style of the BSD
super-server that NeXTstep uses on top of Mach. Running Linux-L4
doesn't buy much from what I can see. You're adding some overhead for
no discernible gain.

Forth kernel provides everything that your fat Linux kernel does.
$ ls -l /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.0-test7
