Well, it may not be vaporware.

http://www.tal.org/~milang/o2/

Got to this site.  It's mostly O2 stuff, but if you look carefully in his 
screen shots, there are two that are supposedly of this FB console for 
extreme.  One shows text, another a floating boxes animation.

Go into his kernel directory, and you can download the IP22 kernel ready 
to run.

I looked carefully through all his patches and links.  The extreme patch 
is not to be found.  I don't even see an email for this "milang" fellow. 
However, interestingly, some of the kernel config files are labled 
"onion".

If we get lucky, the right search terms in the world brain (google) might 
just yeild fruit.  I'll keep poking at it.
