I ultimately use the source code, but I think that a well documented VM

I have read it. What I was looking is a transition FAQ or guideline. The
'for...' case was just an example (and I learnt about it searching the
list). I am afraid that, although my code seems to be running correctly,
maybe I am just attempting to tame dragons somewhere.

It would be nice if this repository becomes open for public view. I usually
track a lot of software applications through commit history and changelogs.
At least for me the above mentioned FAQ would be unnecessary if I could peek
into the repository.
