   \ Ok, here's the story about how we get to the native code for the
   \ recovery code in case of a THROW, and why there is all this funny
   \ stuff being compiled by TRY and RECOVER:
   
   \ Upon a THROW, we cannot just return through the ordinary return
   \ address, but have to use a different one, for code after the
   \ RECOVER.  How do we do that, in a way portable between the various
   \ threaded and native code engines?  In particular, how does the
   \ native code engine learn about the address of the native recovery
   \ code?
   
   \ On the Forth level, we can compile only references to threaded code.
   \ The only thing that translates a threaded code address to a native
   \ code address is docol, which is only called with EXECUTE and
   \ friends.  So we start the recovery code with a docol, and invoke it
   \ with PERFORM; the recovery code then rdrops the superfluously
   \ generated return address and continues with the proper recovery
   \ code.
   
   \ At compile time, since we cannot compile a forward reference (to the
   \ recovery code) as a literal (backpatching does not work for
   \ native-code literals), we produce a data cell (wrapped in AHEAD
   \ ... THEN) that we can backpatch, and compile the address of that as
   \ literal.
   
   \ Overall, this leads to the following resulting code:
   
   \   ahead
   \ +><recovery address>-+

   \ +-lit                |
