I read with great interest the article by Michael Karr at the SIGPLAN '84
symposium on compiler construction. To me the method proposed seemed like a
breakthrough in the efficiency of output produced by code generators. (This
is important, e.g., in the domain of embedded systems where we are working.)
BUT: the article did not contain any implementation experiences or comparisons
with other methods. My question is:

Has anybody used code generation by coagulation in real life?
Is it available in some compiler?
Are tools related to it available?
How does it compare to other state-of-the-art approaches?
