erm.. in terms of time, like 10 minutes to check everything and add
new configurations for building VM with it.
It took more time to build VM and verify it works :)

So its not much.. All code which i did before works out of the box.
The code generator using InterpreterProxy API, and since it hard to
believe it could change from one VM to another,
it is quite stable.

Of course language callbacks are not functioning. But that was expected.
