In general, can a good optimizing C compiler do a better job
of assigning registers to variables better than the programmer?
In other words, should a programmer ever use the "register" storage class?
[My impression is that the compiler can do a much better job, particularly
with a graph coloring register allocator, but I'd be interested in some
real data. -John]
