I suppose this is to facilitate testing only?  Otherwise I don't think
it's necessary.  You can mix bytecode and native code, and AFAIK if the
.beam file you've got is not compiled for your architecture it will fall
back to bytecode.  You can also (re)generate native code from a .beam file.

Yes.  The testsuite doesn't work yet though.
