Absolutely irrelevant to the problem in question. Smalltalk has a
'bytecode verifier' too - it's called the compiler. It too makes sure
the bytecodes are suitable as it 'loads' them.
The problem is that if some *other* tool is generating bytecodes it
can make 'bad' ones that will stomp over other objects. Just as in
java you could etc etc. At least, I assume java could have a tool to
generate bytecodes and run them? I wouldn't really know, never having
had anything to do with it.
