at this point: one thing that would have saved me some trouble in the past: an 
option for the linker that makes it output c-header and asm-include files that 
contain prototypes/references to all functions in a certain segment. right now 
you can only do that with quite a bit of search/replace magic scripting, which 
is somewhat annoying (and errorprone).


The universe is simple; it's the explanation that's complex.
