You seem to have studied a lot of non-mainstream techniques and want
to make use of them.  I think it great that there are people looking
to take more of the results of the research community and attempting
to integrate them into real systems (which is not actually part of a
researcher's job).

I think that so far, your ideas have been, however, too broad: first,
what exactly are the problems you are trying to solve?  You say on the
one hand security and performance.  I agree that these are important.
On the other hand, you completely devalue legacy support.  I think
this is the hardest problem and central to the adoption of new

In short, I think you need to define some goals, consider their
implications (in particular, what things are less important) and then
think about how these new techniques that you've pointed to will
facilitate those goals.  Marcus and I have been doing this for some
time and have found that this articulation process it quite hard yet
rewarding in the insights that it brings.

Good luck,
