Thanks for your suggestion, but it was not my intention to list
everything somehow related to the subject.

Unfortunately, all known to me similar projects, including the ones
mentioned by you above, seem to attack more or less the same common
target (how to begin with a minimal binary seed and come to the latest
development tools), which is different from the perspective and the aim
of my project.

Yes, I know. The VSOBFS project does not pursue the goal to begin from hex0.

No I don't, or may be you mean something else, then please clarify.
