[Vm-dev] implementing atomic operator

Hello, as I mentioned before I'm starting to implement an atomic operator
(a swap between two variables).
I have compiled the StackVM (at least to get started) in Ubuntu 32bits.
A few questions:

- Should I be working on generation.image while doing the implementation?
If so, should I be running the simulated VM running another image while
doing my tests?
- Do you think it is possible to implement the operations in Slang or using
 #cCode:inSmalltalk:? Otherwise I will need to do it in assembler and
inline it
