Huffman coding

What is needed most is to simplify, and to define a clear goal.

* The 8-bit PIC18 Forth language is aimed at:
  - compactness
  - speed
  At the expense of:
  - platform abstraction leakage

* A second interpreter should have compactness and platform
  abstraction at the expense of speed.

I'm intrigued by Huffman coding, especially since at least the target
side looks rather simple to implement, and it is a compiled system.
