    99 0. Stg -> Cmm: Converts to a flat representation of C--.
    1010 0. Cmm -> ZGraphCmm:
    11  * Converts the flat representation to a control-flow graph, with Cmm statements representing instructions in the basic blocks.
    12  * Implements calling conventions for call, jump, and return instructions: all parameter passing is turned into data-movement instructions (register-to-register move, load, or store), and stack-pointer adjustments are inserted.
    13  * How do we refer to locations on the stack when we haven't laid it out yet? The compiler names a stack slot using the idea of a "late compile-time constant," which is just a symbolic constant that will be replaced with an actual stack offset when the stack layout is chosen.

After this point, calls, returns, and jumps are just control-transfer instructions -- the parameter passing has been compiled away.
