Basically, if you want both to coexist, just create a subclass of 
MessageNode to redefine noteSpecialSelector:, then subclass all the 
chain Compiler/Parser to use that MessageNode... And change 
compilerClass where you desire.

If you just want to change the whole system, just change 
noteSpecialSelector:. Of course, you will have to find other ways to 
decently optimize the execution...
