It's slightly back burnered at the moment but it's not parked.  Steve  
Goldman had been working on a compilation policy for tiered and had a  
working prototype of the policy before he passed away.  Recently Igor  
started looking at his changes with an eye towards cleaning them up  
and getting them working again. Hopefully we'll know better where we  
stand soon.
