Instead of sideways, we're now going for double-sideways.

Straight-up in this case is a traditional class structure with methods and inheritance. Sideways means a skeleton class structure with capabilities grouped into modules.

Because it is a lot of work to manually restructure the gal compiler "sideways", and because it's often helpful to see it "straight up", the compiler will now be expected to output the code in both sideways and straight-up formats. The two formats should be functionally equivalent.
