I don't think this is true...  It's not compiled into true assembely, is it?
It's compiled into MOO's own little type of compact program...  While
machine behavior is different, I don't think MOO's compiler/decompiler acts
any different on different machines.

If I'm wrong, yes this would be the way to go.
