I dug into it a bit and it turned out to be pretty easy.  It does make
the interpreter a bit uglier; there are some #ifdefs littered about.
It isn't too bad, though; mostly it is obvious (to me anyway) why
things are the way they are.

I'll probably check it in this weekend, after I do some more testing.

I think the current test suite doesn't test the interpreter at all :-(
