Realization of the Self =B)...

    I'd like to see register EDI point to Self on entry into a method
rather than Self being on the stack. The reason is because setting the
address of a point right before using it (ie what GPC does now) causes an
address calculation stall (on any cpu risc or cisc). It would also be more
convenient to simply reference the pointer using a preset register.  Doing
this would also remove about 3 or 4 unnnecessary 32-bit instructions which
means smaller code size (why does GPC save Self on the stack when it
already is?). 

See ya!
