check out slots.[ch] in the respective kaffe/kaffevm/intrp and
kaffe/kaffevm/jit* directories. The jit3 directory has a description of
the API. The implementation of stack manipulation in the interpreter should 
be simplest to understand and study, before you move on to understand
how the jit deals with slots & registers.
