Since we are going down this path here are some comments...

* Instead of having possibly many math operation builtins it would be better
to have a single builting to do simple math:

rule CALC ( expression + )...

For now just supporting a "+" would be fine, example:

local v = [ CALC 1 + 2 ] ;

* Stick to using standard C functions, i.e. don't use _itoa as it won't be
generaly available. Replacing it with a sprintf would be best .
