Well that would be an obvious rule that garbage code that does not
contribute to the end result (ie can be taken out without affecting the
end result) would not be allowed. Enforcing the rule is another beast
though, but I would leave that to the competition.
Though the idea of a code generator is solid, but instead of generating
garbage, produces a virtual machine that implements a generator that
produces a virtual machine, etc. etc.
