similar to the stand-alone, self-loading (bootable) DEBE was LLMPS
... lincoln labs multiprogramming system .... which was self-loading
program with small multitasker and most of the feature/functions
provided were similar to DEBE.

the folklore is that LLMPS was also used as the core scaffolding for
MTS (michigan terminal system)
