hi all,

i did some more research on the cross-compilation thing
and realized it is better to do this in pf. it has all the
required machinery to make it work, can run standalone
and can be hosted by pd.

mole is currently too much of a liability to use as a basis
for building the pd<->microcontroller thing. once the project
works it should be possible to make it run in mole, which
is much smaller because it doesn't have all this packet crap,
until then i will concentrate on pf and send all remarks
and comments to the pf-list.

i've just sent a large email to the pf-list explaining the 
roadmap for hooking up virtual and real machines to pf. check:


as a test case i am porting the scaf virtual machine 
(simple cellular automaton forth) to pf. this works, not 
counting some small bugs. still, it's 'virtual' :)

the only thing in the way at the moment to make this 
microcontroller thing work is the actual hardware and the 
bootstrap interpreter, which could be the 3-instruction
