A friend of mine was working in a company on a C compiler for the US
military. When I questioned him about it, he said something like this:
The military is going to have a compiler, whether I work on it or not.
Given that this is true, and that large and dangerous things are
going to be controlled by code from this compiler, I want to be one
of the people making sure that they get a damn accurate compiler!
