tail recursion, again

When I had a loaner MacIvory a couple of years ago the release notes
mentioned some optional "block compilation" facilities that were
included in Genera 7.3 Ivory as an experimental facility. I don't know
whether they were Ivory-specific or not, but I don't recall anything
about this in the 8.0 release notes. This stuff might have included
tail recursion and tail call optimization.
You are probably thinking of the special Ivory instructions for doing
block memory access. These are described in the Internals book in the
Ivory-Only Subprimitives section. They aren't experimental.
