OK then, in that case, sure. Bit vectors do end up being too
low-level. I think it would really help this project to have
a clear statement of what we're aiming to do: ie., do we 
want a parser with multiple backends, two of which are interpet
and compile, or do we want a simple python->machine code or 
python->execute as interpeted translator?
