No, I was too lazy to write it. The different bytecode versions are 
listed in the combo-box of the "force bytecode version" project option 

And again : the interpreter must be backward-compatible, i.e. it must be 
able to run any older bytecode version.

Another remind: The "force bytecode version" is an option for the 
compiler, not the interpreter. It forces the compiler not to emit 
opcodes for new bytecode versions, but it's not fully reliable, ad 
explained in the tooltip.
