I read somewhere that fixing the graph register allocator would be a
good project so I thought I'd look into it. I couldn't find any tickets
about it on Trac though so I was poking around for tests to see what (if
anything) was wrong with it.
After I sent that last email I googled around for how to write ghc unit
tests and this
is the only thing I found. Is it not possible to unit test GHC? If not
are there plans/discussions about this? I think it'd help document the
code base if nothing else and it'd be a good way to get my feet wet.
