Well, if you want to get clever about it, sure. :)

lwasm has a similar mode with different mechanics, which behaves badly 
in the time domain on large source code with many forward references. (I 
think it has some algorithms with complexity classes that make Spolsky's 
Schlemiel look downright efficient.)
