State of the current Lambda source tree

Extension methods require VM support, which is not there yet.  Right now 
the compiler attempts to enforce the right constraints, but you would 
get AME at runtime.

Remi wrote an agent which will do load-time weaving of defenders, and 
posted it at google code, which should work for the code currently 
generated by the compiler.

You are right that there should be a central document about the state of 
the implementation.  I'll put that on the to-do list.

Would be nice to know what should work under what circumstances with the current code. I'm running against an up-to-date build of the bsd-port, not sure if that matters.
