John's point is well taken, and I'd just like to add that another good
reason for new compiler writers to study LCC and try to learn from it
is that there is a nice hefty book available whose only purpose is to
throughly describe the internals of LCC.

Having a guidebook like this available should be a great asset for anyone
trying to understand compilers in depth.
