It is not plugged in yet, indeed.  There is one last missing bit before
it can start replacing the old genc: generating function calls in the
absence of low-level types.  It can only generate them if the RTyper has
done its job.  The RTyper is very incomplete and crashes on most real
examples at the moment, so it's a problem.

I guess I should just take a few hours and finish this -- in other words
make the new generator able to translate large un-annotated examples --
plug it into the translator, and good-bye old genc.

A bientot,
