Don't go looking for this vector stuff there; there is a chapter on
compilers for vector processors, but it is basically a rehash of my TOPLAS
article of several years ago. Like all major projects, you no longer
finish it then you find a way you could have done it better. In my case,
the publication of the book resulted in several people coming to me with
questions and different ideas, which started me thinking again about a
problem I thought I was done with, and so on. So, in short, I'm now
working on algorithms for parallel APL which are totally different from
those described in the book.
