Well, that was one hoor of an assignment. We were basically given a month's extension - I had it practically finished except for the extra CALL tile handling - function prologue (callee-save and copying formals) and epilogue (restoring callee-saves and setting up return value) when it was originally due, and left it on hold until a few days ago.

Actually getting CALL working even half-properly was a total headwrecker. The documentation was shit, and there are still unexplained issues that I don't understand - for one, incoming parameters get copied into temporaries that are never referenced... instead, what look like older temporaries are used. Sob.
