Summary: Summary
In summary, the key to our work was (1) we took a
more programmer­centric view of the problem com­
pared to the more prevalent hardware­centric view at
that time, and (2) our persistence in seeking the mini­
mal possible constraints for the hardware interface. This
resulted in our redefining the problem in programmer­
centric terms, enabling a better understanding of some
of the fundamental issues. It is perhaps worth noting
that when we began this work, the problem seemed
deceptively simple, and a highly respected senior col­
league actually warned us that we were getting into
what appeared to be a closed area!
