great! saves one character.

none at all, like it.  "*0" is fine too (and i prefer it work, as it
saves a lot of messing about when sorting the unit tests)

"*" as a deref is actually conceptually exactly what happens
in the hardware anyway: the regfile is literally treated as an
addressable SRAM where the regnum indicates the point
from which vector indexing should start.
