It was interesting to see the number of people who hadn't heard of
Self and didn't know its place in language history!

It would be good to have a list of tasks that interested people could
attack. Maybe this could be done in github issue's with a special tag
and syndicated to the website? Some big ticket items might be:

1) An ARM backend
2) 64-bit support
3) Factor out screen sharing to not rely on X11
4) Linux font support
5) Windows support
