VMMaker 4.3.3

Allow a standard interpreter VM to load and run an image that was saved from a Cog or StackInterpreter VM. On image load, the storage format of Float objects is returned to normalized word ordering (different from platform word order for little endian platforms) and unrecognized header flags are cleared. The image will be saved in standard interpreter format (image format 6504 for a 32-bit image), which may subsequently be loaded by a Cog or StackInterpreter VM.

Works for 32-bit Cog images (image format 6505) on both 32-bit and 64-bit host (compile -m32 or -m64). Support for 64-bit image formats is not yet implemented, see comment in #normalizeFloatOrderingInImage.
