An incredibly hairy technique, found in some HLL and
program-overlay implementations (e.g. on the Macintosh), that
involves on-the-fly generation of small executable (and,
likely as not, self-modifying) code objects to do indirection
between code sections. These pieces of live data are called
"trampolines". Trampolines are notoriously difficult to
understand in action; in fact, it is said by those who use
this term that the trampoline that doesn't bend your brain is
not the true trampoline. See also snap.
