compiling to byte-code vs java

This appears to be relevant to the issue of whether to compile
"Java trees" or make use of javafx-specific code generation.
The code is about generating Java vs bytecodes, but it also
applies to whether we should re-write to Java ASTs or generate
code directly from ExpressionBlock.

I'll ask for more information, but the message seems to
suggest that pushing values of the JVM stack is more efficient
than using temporary variables (as you would have to when
generating Java ASTs or Java source).
