If you adopt the changes I did for the base VMMaker, then use the
methods in ObjectMemory category "oop comparison" to do the comparisons,
i.e. use #oop:isLessThan: rather than #<. This will do the type casting
without upsetting the slang inliner.

BTW did any of you try the slang browser at http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/5916?
It's a lot more convenient than generating a new interp.c every time you
change a method.
