Good points. I really feel that "core", at least as it pertains to the
"corevm" and "coretest" make targets should include just libparrot and
the Parrot executable. We need these targets to be as slim as possible
so that when we have done "make corevm" and "make coretest" we have a
solid base upon which we can start testing ever more abstract layers
of addon functionality.
