If compiled code was saved instead of decompiled, then the db would no
longer be portable.  It would be locked into a particular machine type
and operating system.

Perhaps we need the option to save the working db in compiled form,
yet have a utility that would decompile a saved db, so that it could
still be ported to other machines.
