I used that FIG FORTH package ages ago on real PDP-11's.
Was never impressed with Forth so much.  Only time I was
impressed was when I worked with OpenPROM which was all
written in Forth.  Wanted to do one for the PDP-11 but
lost interest when Sun gave it to IEEE and they wanted
several thousand dollars just to look at it.

Now I am more interested in sticking with the serious
business languages that ran on the PDP-11.
