Another idea is to compile the self byte codes upon method activation into
another set of instructions that is a bit more interpreter-friendly.  You'd
get rid of all EXTEND instructions, would add the number of arguments for a
method send and perhaps even introduce more codes for poping the stack or
to translate ifTrue:IfFalse: or whileTrue: methods to jumps (even if that
shouldn't be done in Self).
