Regarding your question about state of the art, you might also want to look at this paper from 2013: http://lafo.ssw.uni-linz.ac.at/papers/2013_Onward_OneVMToRuleThemAll.pdf <http://lafo.ssw.uni-linz.ac.at/papers/2013_Onward_OneVMToRuleThemAll.pdf>. I do not think that it is the future dynamic languages toolkit Attila speaks about, but it might be related work. It is a dynamic languages toolkit with several open source projects building implementations on top of it:
- Ruby: https://github.com/jruby/jruby/wiki/Truffle <https://github.com/jruby/jruby/wiki/Truffle>
- R: https://bitbucket.org/allr/fastr <https://bitbucket.org/allr/fastr>
- Python: https://bitbucket.org/ssllab/zippy <https://bitbucket.org/ssllab/zippy>
- Smalltalk: https://github.com/smarr/TruffleSOM <https://github.com/smarr/TruffleSOM>
