HiPE and BEAM (i.e., native code and bytecode) happily co-exist
in a hipe-enabled Erlang/OTP system.  For this to happen, most
data representation and data structures of the emulator are
shared.  In particular, native code uses the same atom table
used by BEAM.  Thus, depending on your point of view, the
situation in HiPE is as good or as bad as in BEAM.
