Mostly I want to do this because I wanted to do this when I was 20. Please heap abuse and encouragement and ideas on me.

Design objectives:
* direct threaded, built for speed and compactness
* expose every facet of the PET to the programmer
* use hybrid Commodore/forth screen editor
* works with cassette tape (because that's what I had)

I think there are a few forth fans here who may pipe up. I assume you have a real Pet to test it on as well?
