I ported hugs (ver.1.3?) to plan9 and it was almost o.k.
The code made heavy use of macro and "lisp-like" calling
style, such as

val = f(g(h(i(j(k(arg))))));

8c choked at a few places like the above with the diag
message "out of fixed registers". Creating intermediate
temporaries made the compiler happy.
