[lively-kernel] Couple of question on Lively

Regarding accessing hardware level features: It really depends on how you use Lively. In the form in that we currently use it (web-based wiki called webwerkstatt) then the answer is no. However, we have a node.js integration. We are able to create and program node.js servers from inside Lively. This allows us, for example, to access the system shell, see: http://lively-kernel.org/repository/webwerkstatt/demos/CPUVisualization.mov. Depending on how node.js is setup you can nearly access everything. E.g. with its C FFI or the system shell.
