Hi Jörg,

As a side comment, module ORG itself - one of the largest modules on
the system  - cannot be extended much without bumping into this 8K limit.
It may not have been intentional, but still, it keeps one from adding complex
features to the language ;-) For example, just for adding back type-bound
procedures (which I now regret), I had to slightly increase the 8K limit.
