looks like units + modules are going to be enough to organize brood
without the need for a NS hash table. how to exactly chop it up is
still a bit of a mistery. maybe start with the plain CAT code, then
organize the macros in a similar way, then find a way to translate
forth code straight to s-expression.

what if i start with separating out the assembler as a unit? in the
end i'd like to be able to use externally provided assemblers / C

in doing so, abstracting the data types that are passed between
assembler and linker might be necessary. these are assembly opcodes,
dictionary and compiled target words + linker data.
