It could also be a misnomer for a "register history", which is
useful on machines without any visible parallellization, to keep
track of what register currently holds what variable or value. For

Jim Welsh and Michael McKag, "Structures Systems Programming",
Englewood Cliffs, N.J. (Prentice-Hall), 1980.
