Change to: "with all the necessary checks". An external verifier can check
for much more things that are not strictly required for the security of the system.
So we can have a fast jit with all the necessary checks (please also note that
the jit needs to do many of the checks anyway and it needs to do them
inside jit code, because they lead to different generated code).
And people can have an external verifier if they contribute it with more checks.
The JIT verifier has much higher priority than the external one, IMHO.
