.. although the bytecode interpreter is apparently quite fast,
and for my purposes (a compiler) probably adequate (except for the
too small stack size). However I've found the native code more
robust, and since the bytecode and native code compilers use
*different* binding interfaces to C I felt I had to chose one or 
the other, and for better or worse I've gone with the native
code system. Felix actually works both ways at the moment ..
but there is no extensibility yet.
