words and chains

I'm already regretting the internal linking of word structures. It
feels unnatural to have to convert things to a list, and have to
remember if something is a sequence or not. On the other hand, it's a
clear sign of fallthrough: a word can never be mistaken to be

Maybe i should define iterators / comprehensions?

It's probably better to define an explicit chain type, instead of
using words for that.. A chain is a list of words. The address of a
chain is the address of the first word.

Basic idea: directly encoding fallthrough from a given word instance
is less important than having a proper data structure that
distinguishes entry points from code grouping due to fallthrough.
