I can see that makes sense.

I've never seriously looked at x86 code produced by compilers. The point where things started to get seriously incomprehensible to me was the CISC->RISC transition (you could often make sense of VAX/68000 output, but trying to understand what compilers produced for MIPS/SPARC was much, much harder).
