  (1)  But, they are not really two separate software.

  (2) the interpreter does what a category looks like syntactically.
      So, instead of aborting with an obscure message, it can just
      as well call the compiler sub-component with the parse tree
      and has the compiler does the construction and loads the
      resulting object.
