Interesting. I didn't realise there had been so many projects in Forth. I started to learn /use Forth at one point, as it looked like we (Matra Marconi Space) might be forced to use the RTX2010 as it was one of very few space qualified processors with hardware floating point support. In the end we used the MA31750, with Ada, instead.
