On segmented architectures, this kind of thing didn't always work,
Of course, one of the big problems with building an error-checker is
deciding what to diagnose. (I speak from experience at CenterLine,
which built some of the more popular error-checking tools.) If you
point out things where code doesn't match the standards -- but does
work on all platforms of interest -- users often aren't too happy.
So, there are really two questions: is the code conformant, and should
we warn about it?
