yes please.

that we need one example unit test of how to run some assembly code
"qemu vs simulator" rather than "qemu vs hardware"

or, even just "qemu with some asserts" but looking *exactly* like how
it's done in the simulator, right now.

and that ultimately it should be possible to have a runtime switch
(or a suite of tests) that allow us to verify *aaalll* the simulator
test_pipe_caller.py tests, in the following way:

* simulator vs qemu
* qemu vs hardware
* hardware vs simulator

later i would very much like to be able to add microwatt to that list.
