SEE still needs the word's name, which is ugly to get when you have the XT only.
SEE ( "name< >" -- ) $SEE ( name name-len -- ) (SEE) ( xt -- )
SEE and $SEE -- I think it's quite easy to get the word's name here ;)
(SEE) can't in general find the name.
Even though we don't really need a fast SEE. With the word I posted we have O(N) instead of O(1), but this is acceptable taking into regard that SEE is only for debugging anyways and we have the sources without SEE ;)
There's no need for COMPILE-ONLY wrt FCode; the FCode loader can assume all FCode is legal FCode, the burden of checking is on the tokenizer.
b(;) is a COMPILE-ONLY/IMMEDIATE word. The evaluator gets B(;)'s FCode# and fetches it's XT. But it of course needs to find out that this word must not be compiled but executed, when in compile mode.
FWIW, I'm getting rid of COMPILE-ONLY altogether; and there'll be a separate FCode-immediate (and probably not in the word's flags, but in the fcode table).
