Well I have a setup for analysis, that's about it. If anyone can think
of good experiments to do, let me know and I'll report the results.

I mostly just use Forth for prototyping. Basically forth "words" can be
stacked like Legos. You end up making a lot of very simple words that
can be strung together at the interpreter prompt to do more complex
stuff. So it's very useful for interactively trying things out, in order
to get a feel for the protocol or hardware you are dealing with.
It is probably more useful in embedded systems contexts, particularly on
constrained systems (8 or 16 bit CPUs or microcontrollers with very
I tend to rewrite the final application in C.

Cool! Keep us apprised.
