First, I've only read this through twice, and so have not, yet, 
understood what the compiler is doing to this code. As such, I don't 
feel qualified to comment.

The other aspect is that the lecture is more algorithmic than 
implementation. I'm trying to answer the "how do you structure your 
program so that algorithmic complexity doesn't kill you of an heart 
attack before you are 30". Just as the article points out, a simple 
memory barrier here would solve the problem, so this is obviously an 
implementation question.

I'll try to point out some of these problems, but that won't be the focus.
