We thank all the members of the Jalapeño team who have contributed to the code base over the past four years. We especially thank Vivek Sarkar and Mauricio Serrano, who contributed key ideas in the portable design of the optimizing compiler. (Mauricio also warned us that we would get in trouble in a port to IA32 if we associated the return address with the caller's stackframe. He was right.) We additionally extend special thanks to Mike Hind and Mark Mergen for their efforts in support of this work. Also thanks to Dave Hansen for making the iburg tool available, and to Steve Blackburn for his help and feedback.
