Here's the output of "size," which doesn't tell me much....I think.  Unless
in v7 data has to be under 32K rather than 64K?  Surely not, right?  (The
data segment is 32K of main memory for FORTH, plus some for the startup
Forth script, plus a bit for the line buffer and some miscellaneous pointer

$ size forth.o
7580+34034+0 = 41614b = 0121216b
