Hm, I hadn't thought about such diverse and useful properties of the tee
shirt. I think that Stephen wrote some stuff on ideas for the opus.
Probably a good chunk of this week will be on catching up for last week (and
setting up CVS for MLton), but after that it sounds great.
Also Stephen and I talked a bit about a new optimization (and change to the
IL) for handing exceptions. The notion is that you can save the current
handler stack global, you can set the stack part of the global to point to
the current frame, and you can set the code pointer in the current frame
handler (only required because you are going to do a non-tail call to some
function in the dynamic scope of a handle expression in this function).
Going to this non-block-structured IL makes more optimal code generation
possible to express in the IL.
