    158 I would like to thank all the people who made this thesis possible.
    159 (I'm waiting until who is involved is finalized.)
     158As is tradition and his due, I would like to begin by thanking my
     159supervisor Peter Buhr. From accepting me in a first place,
     160to helping me run performance tests, I would not be here without him.
     161Also if there was an ``artist" field here he would be listed there as well,
     162he helped me a lot with the diagrams.
     163
     164I would like to thank the readers
     165Gregor Richards and Yizhou Zhang
     166for their feedback and approval.
     167The presentation of the thesis has definitely been improved with their
     168feedback.
     169
     170I also thank the entire Cforall Team who built the rest of the
     171\CFA compiler. From the existing features I used in my work, to the
     172internal tooling that makes further development easier and the optimizations
     173that make running tests pass by quickly.
     174This includes: Aaron Moss, Rob Schluntz, Thierry Delisle, Michael Brooks,
     175Mubeen Zulfieqar \& Fangren Yu.
     176
     177And thank-you Henry Xue, the co-op student who
     178converted my macro implementation of exception declarations into
     179the compiler features presented in this thesis.
     180
     181Finally I thank my family, who are still relieved I learned how to read.
