If I remember correctly, Franz Lisp used the simple JSR instruction
while cc used the complex CALLS instruction. I even have some
recollection of it running over assembler generated by cc and
replacing the CALLSs with JSRs.
Incidentally, you could run cc's peephole optimiser on the assembler
code produced by Franz Lisp, to produce code that was usually faster
and often still correct.
