I am applauding your efforts.
Being able to deeply upgrade the compiler in a system which just runs,
and don't needs restarting is very hard challenge.
That's what makes smalltalk different to many others: your system just
keeps running and allows you to modify a very internal structures
of restarting anything, or starting from scratch.
