[fpc-devel] OT: Code generation

Knowing that there are some good compiler guys in here: does anybody 
remember a paper and set of patches for GCC that randomises register 
allocation and makes random choices for the code generator (e.g. zero a 
register either by xor a,a or sub a,a etc.) in order to give buffer 
overflows less to bite on? Any URLs etc. would be much appreciated.

Could such a thing be done for FPC? :-)
