The author of that paper (Christian Haeubl) is part of our research 
project and also a main Graal contributor. While we do not have any 
plans to add trace compilation to Graal, we are developing strategies 
for solving "The Inlining Problem" in a different way that involves 
context-sensitive profiling feedback. We are still doing the experiments 
in a side branch, but will start adding them to the main repository over 
the summer.
