Interesting. Although .. these are not particularly well suited for *direct* comparison
(e.g. of size of generated code size, jump table implementation, overhead of any
selection in a CASE statement, implementation effort..) with implementations on
RISC - Patchouli generates ARM code, while OBNC outputs C code.

PS: I like the Patchouli implementation (previously called Aya) and may use
some ARM-sepcific insights from that piece of work for an ARM implementation
of the original Oberon-07 compiler (cross-compiler on RISC).
