maybe that the structure of the dictionary is an implementation detail
in _every_ Forth "standard"? so it's not important if we're using indirect
threaded, direct threaded or anything else - there could even be an OF
implementation that compiles to real binary code, but that's not feasible
for a multiplatform project...

so where's the problem?
