I mentioned previously a book describing a simple VM for scheme (Lisp In
Small Pieces). With regards to the current lambda topic, I thought maybe
some of you would be interested (or maybe not) to see a dump of the
bytecodes generated for this VM from a couple of relevant scheme
((lambda () #t))
(let ((simpleFn (lambda () #t)))
