Sometimes I get very strange error messages, about types that are not 
used in the indicated locations.

There exist more possible problems, with the data types stored in the 
.ppu files. E.g. an exception counter is stored as a byte, but an 
integer is used throughout the remaining code. I dunno how inlines or 
generics are involved (where generics are not used in the compiler itself).
