Well, I don't want to discourage anyone from working on native code export if they have good reason to believe it's worthwhile. (This is not to be confused with the JIT, which is native code as an in-memory optimization.) But as far as I can tell, it isn't
worthwhile. Some good use cases might change my mind, of course.
BTW, for those of you who want to create packaged binaries: I suggest that the best route will be to package the parrot executable along with your pbc.
