If the lifetime is ok, then couldn't you store the pseudo-registers on the
stack? The point being that this would save one register.
Any way, I would be curious how much space this would save, and also how much
time, especially on programs like self-compile which are large enough that
the I-cache savings might be noticed. Also, as Stephen said, perhaps the
register pointing to the block of pseudo-registers would only be reserved
during chunks of code doing a lot of access to the pseudo-registers (instead
of all the time).
