Of course, everything must be considered on a case-by-case basis.  There 
is no hard and fast rule.

With my GNU Smalltalk hat on, I would redirect VM ideas to the GNU 
organization, and only use ESUG slots for projects that have more 
porting potential.  But I understand that not all dialects have the same 
opportunity.
