TODO before next release (not exclusive)

- Rewrite stack inspection for Alpha without OSF/1 libexc.  This task
  will enable JIT Alpha for GNU/Linux (and NetBSD).

- Solve random SEGV on NetBSD/PowerPC.

- Write JIT for PowerPC (NetBSD and GNU/Linux).

- Include new release of KJC kjc-1.5A.

Other TODO before or after next release:

- Port to Darwin (Mac OS X).

- Merge libraries with tvt-kaffe.

- Study backlog of patches.

- Solve random (and hard to reproduce) SEGV on FreeBSD/Intel.
