      Description

      When the type of the registers appears in the name of an operator it has two differing meanings, e.g.

      BOOLEAN_CMP_LONG
      compare two longs and produce a boolean result

      COND_MOVE_LONG
      perform a compare (type of operands not specified) and produce a long result

      it would be good if we could make this more uniform.
