probably unrelated, but yet somewhat fitting the topic here. You
might also want to take a look at recent microkernel developments at
http://www.l4ka.org/ (which is a project of the university I am
attending). Although I am yet not into either system in-depth, I
recognize common ideas.

IBM was (and probably still is?) involved in this project with an
OS called SawMill running on top of it, so maybe you know it (and its
relations to your work?)
