Precompilation to PIR currently doesn't work in the November project -- the difficulties occur when trying to call methods in the precompiled module. Right now our Makefile protests if someone tries to compile the modules to PIR. I think there is an rt ticket for this, but my attempts to dig it up fail. Maybe someone else is more lucky. // Carl
