Heh. You're expecting me to do far too much work. I plan on tackling 
bytecode optimization only if it turns out that a straightforward 
transform from python bytecode to parrot bytecode is isn't 
sufficiently faster than CPython. Funky algorithms expressed entirely 
in python bytecode won't make much of a difference...
