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.

Also true.

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).
