Hi Tim -
This looks actually pretty good - I was finally able to compile a
working VM again (yay!). One problem I had was with the definition and
use of the sqFilenamefromblabla macro - ioFilenamefromblabla (the only
user of that macro) is defined as taking sqInt but the macro makes happy
use of  which makes the compiler complain that the "subscripted value
is neither array nor pointer". This should either be cast properly or
declared to take pointer arguments.
