AFAIR from the discussions in the early nineties, OF should work similar
to JAVA: either interpret the bytecode (slow/small/simple) or compile
to native code (fast/big/complicated).
Have a look to MPEs VFX-compilers, they are doing the latter for Forth
and i am rather sure, that the same _can_ be done for FCode.

I never had any doubts about it. Its just a fact, that i am
so stupid, that i needed some additional info to understand :-)
