I completely hate the ByteLoader design but I already spent a lot
of hours on it and I promised to make it work - so I have to do it :)

And about hiding - ByteLoader can nuke Deparse by stripping the
syntax tree - see if I make this work again.

Since the .pmc has been there for years without ByteLoader working
at all I think it should stay there now that it kinda works again.

OK for #ifndef'ing it out but please don't make this the default.
