I know this wasn't meant to be taken seriously, but since Vlad has
already dissed (a) and (b), I don't think (c) is true either.
I'm not aware that Paolo wrote any of the MIPS scheduler descriptions.
(Forgive me if I'm wrong Paolo.)  The define_function_unit-to-DFA
conversion was done my Eric and myself, and the DFA-from-scratch
schedulers were written by an unholy alliance of Eric, Mike Meissner,
David Ung, Joseph Myers and me.  (Sorry again if I've missed anyone.)

And for the record, it's just as well the above wasn't meant to be
taken seriously, as I think it would do Vlad a great disservice.
