In designing Kelvin, although I brorowed heavily from ColdX, thois was one
thing I chanegd. Kelvin has seperate instances and classes, this actually
led to very elegent code in the underlying VM.

My OTHER chnage is that Kelvin is a rsic machine, a true OO stack machine
with a total of about a dozen op codes.  ColdX on the other hand has what
is really a tokenized interpreter.  I claim my VM will bve faster because
its simpler, miro claims Colds will be because each opcode does mreo work.
Only time will tell...  (a class RISC/CISC debate)
