If you dig in the git history you'll find traces of an attempt
to implement AVM2 support. It was dumped because it was a
maintainance problem and seemed to be a dead road. But you could
look at it to get an idea.

Or you could start from scratch with some simple tests targetting
an AVM2 machine.

If you want to just get familiar with the code you may try
implementing some kind of nicer user feedback for when AVM2
is encountered (something that doesn't require digging in
the logs, like a GUI popup with "don't tell me anymore" option).
There is a ticket about the GUI notification, on savannah.
