yes.  hence the need for the pseudocode.  until that exists there *is* no mfmsr
(etc) to test against!

in this case even the TRAP function has to be written.

this would (in python) move the SPRs about, set NIA to 0x700 blah blah.

the syntax is python-indented (that was a pig to implement), and borrowed
python concepts such as brackets.  i replaced operators such as = with <- and
so on.

subscripted ranges were obviously not possible to do in ASCII so i did straight
brackets python slices but kept the POWER numbering.

so the translator pushes an extra +1 out on the "end" of the slice.

you saw that when doing bperm.
