Interesting.  I don't think I have seen that before.  Were you aware
of "Rattlesnake" before you started on that?  It seems your approach
is similar.  Probably not because I don't think it is easy to find.
I uploaded a tarfile I had on my PC to my web site:


It seems his name doesn't appear in the readme or source but I think
Rattlesnake was Skip Montanaro's project.  I suppose my idea of
unifying the local variables and the registers could have came from
Rattlesnake.  Very little new in the world. ;-P
