new badnop control flow

in  = project sourcecode
out = compiled target code + dictionary

1. PARSE EXTENSIONS

   Read all source files and extend the compiler to include the macros
   and constants defined in the source files. This effectively builds
   a new special purpose compiler for the code in the project.

2. COMPILE CODE

   Convert all code definitions and data allocations to a form that is
   executable by the CAT VM, and run this code. This generates
   optimized symbolic assembly.

3. ASSEMBLE CODE

   In a two-pass algorithm, convert the symbolic assembly to binary
   opcodes, allocating and resolving memory addresses. This process
   uses the current dictionary, reflecting the state of the target,
   and produces a new dictionary and a list of binary code.
