Forth VM next

Need to check if the macros work with the vm: language.  Currently the
hack to have a bootstrapping Forth console for the 16-bit VM seems to
be simple and effective.

Ok. Macros work.

But..  I simply can't have it that I spent all this time making the
Forth layer abstract enough to be able to reuse it for other
architectures, but I can't seem to make it work for building Forth on
Forth.  As mentioned before: I'm probably not going to use that layer
much.  To make the self-hosted Forth possible, all macros need to be
implemented as on-target words.

That would be the next step.

Now, instead of always looking at host -> target rpc, what about
enabling target -> host calls?  This would make bootstrapping a
self-hosted interpreter simpler: it would enable gradual offloading.

That seems to be the real problem to solve!
