I'm not sured if changing p5 in OP_OpenWrite is a good idea since
1) Even if p5 isn't used while xfer is processed it's reserved and
there are no free parameters.
2) Who knows, probably we will need p5 for something in future.
3) AFAIK OP_OpenWrite is a legacy opcode and probably gonna be
4) For me it's more counter-intuitive to put incrementation in
opcode that barely related to xfer optimization idea.
5) Do CPU cycles matter for debugging purpose only global variable?
