When we first there were no Haskell compilers with an explicit
independant bytecode format. There is however plenty of Java bytecode
compilers - hence at the very beginning we stole their terminology and
did take a brief look at their implementation techniques.

Report everything. Probably report it as low priority, and attach the
"Beginner" flag to it - it would be a great way for people who want to
start playing around the edges of Yhc/Yhi to get something small we
can easily accept. Anyone who wants to patch it, just email us :)
