Toolchain applied to interpreter, Fibonacci running

Just a quick note (we were busy hacking and are now too tired for anything more): A few hours ago the interpreter was successfully translated to C and was running the Fibonacci function. It is around 15 times slower than Squeak, which is amazingly fast for the first try (PyPy's Python interpreter was at least 200 times slower than CPython when we first managed to translate it).

More details will follow tomorrow (in particular how to try it yourself).
