* compile the monitor
* port interactive code
maybe it's possible to get rid of interpret/compile mode in console
interaction. maybe some 'auto tether' can be made: not running certain
optimizations so macros can be easier simulated?
that's quite a challenge..
the problem at first hand seems to be the use of platform-dependent
constructs.. translating forth to pseudo code is trivial, but some of
the langauge is defined ONLY in terms of assembly code.
the reason to have an interpret mode is to not have to touch the flash
rom. ram-based forths should really just compile and execute, but for
rom-based forths there is room for a separate interpret mode
language. it's also the right spot to introduce tethered commands from
