Hi all --

I have received a number of responses to my query about a
bounds-checking version of gcc. My recollection/hunch was spot on --
there is indeed such a thing, but I have no idea where the phrase "Safe
GCC" got into my mind. Whatever.

It appears that the definitive URL -- brief explanation, links to full
report and code -- is:

Many thanks to all those who provided me with pointers -- they all seem
to wind up at this URL, so I figured I'd post this for the benefit of all.
