If we follow further this road, potentially, we could associate each
primitive with atom.
E.g. instead of holding direct function pointers in external primitive
table, we register an atom/symbol with moduleName.primitiveName and
put pointer there.

Now new module can selectively replace existing primitive with new
one, even #primitiveAdd, with own , better faster implementation, if
it makes any sense :)
