class ostream;
* This header file describes the types and constants used to describe
* the possible target output types of the compiler. The backends
* provide one of these in order to tell the previous steps what the
* backend is able to do.
* The backend driver is hooked into the compiler, and given a name,
* by creating an instance of the target structure. The structure has
* the name that the compiler will use to locate the driver, and a
* pointer to a target_t object that is the actual driver.

* The emit process uses a target_t driver to send the completed
* design to a file. It is up to the driver object to follow along in
* the iteration through the design, generating output as it can.

* Implement the case statement.
* Convince t-vvm to output code for
* the case statement.
