Reia is partly self-hosted and as such needs the compiled ebin for the core
routines available for the compiler to work.

I'm CCing erlang-questions on this as I'm curious what procedures the Erlang
compiler uses to avoid similar bootstrapping problems.  I'm trying to
self-host a compiler / language on top of BEAM and running into problems
with backwards compatibility of the generated BEAM bytecode.
