That would actually be fun to do I guess, but I suggest low priority
here (btw: if we look at this at all: procomp from the Tclpro package
should be the thing to look at. One could check for procomp; use it
if available and then integrate the necessary part of the tbc runtime
into websh to be able to load the code.)

It could well be that we look at something similar in the near/far
future (we have our own "compiler" that might need a replacment,
because it does not actually compile anything, but rather just hides
code in a shared object...)
