This is also waiting on some heroic figure rewriting the register allocator so that earlier passes can get decent feedback on whether they're going to spill to hell and back or not (and then the earlier passes would have to get updated to use this information...)
How funny! This is exactly what I want to do in the Mono JIT :-)
Here's a link to a presentation about our medium-long term JIT plans: "http://www.go-mono.com/meeting06/MonoSummit2006-JIT.pdf".
Actually we will not go fully SSA so fast, and maybe never.
But we will rewrite the register allocator, and in the SSA path
I will make sure that the communication between the optimization
passes and the regalloc will happen effectively!
