to be more precise, the compiler would *compile*

x = a + b/c

to some bytecode like

LOAD_FAST 0 (a) # get var and put on valuestack
LOAD_FAST 1 (b) # get var and put on valuestack
LOAD_FAST 2 (c) # get var and put on valuestack
BINARY_DIVIDE # take 2 stack values and put
# the devision of them on valuestack
BINARY_ADD # take 2 stack values and put
# the sum on the value stack
STORE_FAST 3 (x) # store last stack item into "x"

and the interpreter would execute this bytecode.

What about going for writing bytecode-assembler instead of
language-level oneliners ?
