As mentioned before, for RISC chips some dataflow analysis is
necessary to do proper register alloc.  I should really have a look at
Factor's new intermediate rep.  Probably a lot to learn there.

Also, I'd like to define an applicative first order language that's as
simple as possible, to get an idea of the complexity of a compiler
that support such a language, and to see how far such a thing is from
properly data-flow analysed stack code.  Maybe have a look at Jal?
(Hmm.. according to Wouter the source code is a mess..)
