Here it's clear that I didn't communicate well.  What I am terming a
"register" is a value in a local stack slot.  That's all.  No need to
save and restore, since they're already on the stack.

In a virtual machine, it doesn't make sense to have registers in the
hardware sense, I don't think.

Perhaps it needs a different name than "register virtual machine".
