Let me see if I can follow your logic:  IMCC gives access to all Parrot
features, therefore IMCC must be used.


I don't think a full-featured IMCC implies that it must be used to
generate Parrot code, any more than saying that language X is the only
way to program because it's the msot full featured.  It may well be that
IMCC is the best way to generate Parrot bytecode, but nobody's saying
it's the *only* way.
