What a superb paper! One of the very few I have read in my life to have
taught me significant amounts of new stuff about something I thought I
already knew.

Interestingly, in all my own code to date I have always been super extra
careful to meet strict aliasing requirements, plus I write unit tests to
test for parameter validation because I usually get my parameter validation
wrong. I think that has been a large reason I have never been bitten by any
of those vanishing code cases so far.

Looking forward to this SG's discussion.
