This legend is rather unfortunate because it means that when you work in the states they think that pizza and coke is enough to entice you to work overtime. Do not be afraid to say that this isn't good enough and only a curry and a six pack will do. Anyway I wasn't there for the friday lunchtime session or the weekend brainstorm that produced the compiler. I do know it is not beyond reason to create a binary to basic disassembler/decompiler that produces reasonable readable basic code in a weekend.
