Re: [wwwdocs] Cleanup of "Open projects" 1/n

Let's start with removing some obviously dead stuff:
- Bounded pointer checking "".  The
 line "Project Status (updated 2000-08-11)" should tell you
 enough.  My understanding is this work has been subsumed
 by mudflap, but even if it is not, this is Really Old Stuff
 that needs to go away.
- Value range propagation pass "which isn't yet in GCC" and
 never will be.  There is a newer vrp.c on the hammer branch
 and Diefo wants a VRP pass for tree-ssa.
- Automaton based pipeline hazard recognizer.  This is not
 work in progress, it's finished.

Okay. And thanks for attacking this mess!

However, I think the web page for it should be marked with a prominent
"this project is dead" notice rather than removed and causing 404s for
anyone with external links or bookmarks to it.

For added bonus points, you could establish a new page projects/dead.html and redirect (via htdocs/.htaccess which is also in CVS) to bp/ pages to that new page. This will give any linkers a stronger hint, namely a redirection code, and I suspect we will need to resuse this page in the future.
