Chow's method is always at least as good as Chaitin's graph coloring
(and sometimes better). It is likely that it will only be significantly
better on machines *without* lots of registers. That's because both of
these methods try to avoid spills. If you have a zillion registers,
you never spill with either method, so they're equal in that case.
