Seen in comp.arch today:

    VLIW's original origins _was_ from writable control store.  VLIW
    started out as a regularization of the control bits of multiple
    functional units, to make things easier to control, and things
    like trace scheduling come from hand techniques for writing
    microcode.  Look up the history of FPS.
