Me no understand. From the scsh 0.4.2 manual, I understand that one
can run scripts/build programs directly atop the scsh virtual machine,
opening just those packages one needs, excluding the shell, debugger,
etc. The manual also mentions, but does not document, a facility to
produce Unix binaries which takes some code off the heap and puts it
into the text segment. Does these mechanisms not work yet? Or do
they work, but lead to little or no savings?
