I ran the above, and it seemed to work well, until I got to the
"conform.rkt" test, when it spewed a *lot* of output like this:

_62969 at http://localhost:8371/eval:4681
_63082 at http://localhost:8371/eval:2199
_63901 at http://localhost:8371/eval:6925
_63932 at http://localhost:8371/eval:6052
_63900 at http://localhost:8371/eval:6625
_63899 at http://localhost:8371/eval:6945
_63080 at http://localhost:8371/eval:4579
_62961 at http://localhost:8371/eval:4702

and then said:

Machine.prototype._trampoline at http://localhost:8371/eval:13253

and stopped without an error.

The last lines printed in the browser window are:

 #<procedure:swf2-f> #<procedure:set-swf2-f!> Hello World! 6 -> 26 ->
16 16 -> 132

I then used this method on all the remaining files and they seemed to
go through the compiler fine, but I don't know how to test them.
