My impression was that e.g. Java grade is rather experimental. (But I have never 
tried it, so I just might be wrong and it works fine.)

I'm wrapping the beast for you, it'll take a while.

No, not yet.

I usually compile in asm_fast.gc, but a simpler program recently showed a 
marginal speedup in hlc.gc. That's why I started experimenting.

Thanks for the details, O.
