Actually the assembler is not that hard to understand :)
My point is, that I don't like the idea of 7 or 20 or 100 amount of
parameters to give answer to every need. I think we should find a
better way to implement it, like var args in C or open array in

to avoid it... So my question is, is there a way to avoid it ?
