Its purely technical don't worry, the problem is that the CLR (.NET's VM)
is stack based, and for me (someone else may think the contrary), its too
much work
in changing the compiler... If it was a simulated register based vm (or
something similar to that) I'd be the first to implement it!

Also, one other thing, because of strict type checking, i think you need
to create a constant pool just like java's vm, and i don't think thats very
to implement...
