See "CCG: A Prototype Coagulating Code Generator", W. G. Morris,
Sortware Options, Inc., in SIGPLAN Notices, Vol 26, No. 6, June 1991,
Proceedings of the ACM SIGPLAN `91 Conference on Programming Language
Design and Implementation, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
(i.e., SIGPLAN `91).

That work follows on to the "coagulation" method originally proposed by
Michael Karr and reported in SIGPLAN `84 (and earlier papers available
from Karr).

See also the David Wall paper in the SIGPLAN `91 proceedings and all the
reference-threads leading from the Morris and Wall papers.
