To see the code I would use

Compiler new compileExpression: '3 + 4'

in the workspace. If you print it you get 

selector: "doIt",
source: unescape("doIt%20%5E%5B3%20+%204%5D%20value"),
fn: function(){
var self=this;
return (function(){return (3).__plus((4));})._value();
return self;}

If you execute it you use

Compiler new loadExpression: '3 + 4'

That is my short insight. Nicholas may come up with the real meat :)

hope it helps,
