The New Interpreter

The new interpreter will be a register-based interpreter.
Register based interpreters are significantly faster than stack-based interpreters, see
db.usenix.org/events/vee05/full_papers/p153-yunhe.pdf.

The new instructions will be a fixed-width of 32 bits, comprising up to 6 fields.
The first is the opcode, the remaining fields describe the operands.
