overlapping instructions: the idea of issuing a DIV followed by an ADD
is working well, the two instructions do in fact create a Dependency
Hazard and the wrong result is produced (which is, ironically, a good

in core.py, i will have to add a "capture" system of the incoming decoded
instruction, because unfortunately it is necessary to acknowledge
the "acceptance" of the current instruction before the previous
pipeline stages (fetch, decode) can be permitted to continue.
i.e. use an internal ispec() temp copy of the incoming data.
