I think that at this point we should focus on making the compiler
conformant.  Only when we are conformant to the spec we should start
looking into VSA.  Otherwise we might spend our life refactoring code,
and never getting the actual work done.

Also, one thing about VSA: we will need to change the license from GPL
to X11 for the compiler.  We would need all contributors to do so, I
will talk to Novell lawyers to change the license on the portions that
we own to make this happen, but others should agree as well (Marco and
Rafael being the major authors).
