To add my two cents on unnecessary labels and directives.  The problem is
with the speed of DEC Macro Assemblers.  They are and always have been VERY
SLOW, there for a compiler writer never uses the standard one.  She/He normally
must generate object code directly and build an object code displayer to
print out object code.  I really don't know if BLISS-32 does it this way but
FORTRAN and Pascal on VMS do.

Otherwise, I think this work is very interesting.
