My 2 cents worth of prognostication:

VLIW, industrial-strength instruction scheduling, and industrial-
strength alias analysis will be commonplace in 20 years.

Incremental compilation `while-u-type' will be commonplace 20 years
from now. Thus, the issue of compilation speed will be mostly
moot because by the time you stop editing, your changes will have
already been compiled. Impact: fewer coffee breaks. :-)
