Right I understand this, but I'm fairly sure there is an official spec 
for Forth local variables somewhere. For something to be committed, I'd 
expect the commit reference to contain a link to the source 
specification and comments in the code giving an indication as to what 
the level of implementation actually is (I absolutely understand that it 
can be impractical to implement everything within the time available).
