I've also very curious about how this was done. Many years ago,
I read Budd's

    _An Apl Compiler_

( See for
details ), and IIRC, some of the techniques he used there might
be useful for something like this. IOW, he evaluated the data flow
for a apl expression and somehow created c code to evaluate the rhs.
IIRC, he also mentioned vector machines. Anyway, it may give you
some more ideas for lazy evaluation.
