I suppose it's just as well I never mentioned that the McLaren F1 road
car runs the same system :-)

In fact the Elise /can/ be used as a general-purpose Forth system, as
the debug port (suitably encrypted) is just a Forth command-line - it
has the standard vocabulary and a bit of free memory to do your own

I can't remember how the debug port works, so don't bother asking!
