I made some design decissions that were not quite in line with them and
I believe that they were necessary in order to improve perfomance and
reliability under load, usability, resource consumption.
As said somewhere in the docs, no interpreter or huge runtime lib is

FritzBox (embedded MIPS based system) but I am not there yet.
