Ah. Now that is probably a different kettle of coloured horses. Anthony
included the redefined CM stuff in his initial work BUT in order to
make Closures work in a more 'ordinary' VM environment he reworked
things to not rely upon it. The cost of the new format is an image
backwards compatibility break, and peple have been very leery of that.
