Don't understand exactly what you do, but maybe we should add another
word for returning with an exit code.  (bye) isn't even mentioned
anywehere in the Gforth documentation, I just found it via grep'ing the
sources.  On the other hand, people already may be using (bye), so
changing semantics may be a bad idea.

Gforth as a library... that'll be a nice feature.

I think it's about time to drop CVS.  It really gets in the way when
working on Gforth sources.  I'm not a big fan of Git, too complex, too
many ways to do the same thing (and even more ways to do it slightly
wrong).  But already much better than CVS.  Does it keep the full
history?  What about moving the Git repo to savannah?
