The Factor VM is stack-based and thus might be appropriate for a more
real world example of a small, tight VM is people are interesting in
virtual machine technology. Apparently, the core VM is only 6,000
lines of C so it shouldn't be too bad.

As far as the language goes, I'm kind of warming up to it, but I can't
see mass adoption. People are telling me that the Erlang syntax is
ugly so Factor's might just blow them out.
