rule 41 code in the BitBltPlugin
is not mine. :)
I just took an effort to integrate already existing work made by other(s).
I had to change the methods in order to replace _ with := for
assignments and also use annotations <..foo.. > instead of 'self
that's why those methods stamped by my name.
But i didn't changed any semantics, just made sure it works.

One is a rare crash in GC on copying a compiled method, caused by the VM not making sure that a copy of a method that has been compiled to machine code is an independent copy. The other is a potential bug in GC with become where a become causes some machine code methods to gain references to young objects but the VM forgets to include these methods in the young referrers (those machine code methods that refer to young objects).
