As i have already written, asm is good for small parts of code or as an exercise,
to see what the compiler could do.

However it is not the goal of the assembler to tell you if you coded correctly or
not. Or at least, you shoud be able to shut this option off.
Furthermore, this option will not be useful when you need to write 1000 instructions.
a trained brain can't even handle so many informations and your tool will not
be useful, because it is bound to the textual representation of the program.

In fewer words, what you do is "cool" but won't get you really far.
