The bytecode verifier is not a particularly difficult thing to
implement, just an important one to get correct ;)

Regarding BCEL's bytecode verifier implementation: it is not 100%
compatible with Sun's as it is more strict, but the code is nice and
definitely worth using for any Java-based verifier implementation.

In any event, I don't think the verifier--which basically performs
static type checking to save some run-time cost--will affect the
architecture of the VM, which should be the main focus of the
discussion for now.
