I don't see how this is a sound API that can be used without too much
possibility to shoot yourself in the foot ;)

I _think_ that eventually the bug is fixed if you move the update_ssa after
versioning to after canonicalize_loop_ivs which should have a similar effect
than what you propose.  GRAPHITE relies on defered update_ssa as well to
maintain "compatible" SCEV analysis results.
