I would like to know what people think of the advantages/disadvantages
of letting TEMPORARIES to fight for registers along side PROGRAM VARIABLES,
as opposed to reserving the register allocation only for PROGRAM VARIABLES
and pre-alloacate a fixed number of registers for TEMPORARIES.

Please respond by email.
