A few more snippets of information: it was used by the WPS-8 development group in Merrimack, NH (a few cubes over from my first office at DEC).  The host ran RSTS/E, and there was a RSTS "Runtime System" as part of the machinery.

I've never seen any of the code; the brief description above is all I know.
