What's your opinion on this? The last round I posted (and what you have
in pu) is about as good as this technique is going to get. So it is
really a taste thing. On the one hand, I really like that it is not just
papering over the problem, but rather giving the compiler more data to
do its analysis. On the other hand, it makes the source kind of ugly.

I don't think there's a rush on it, but I'm just sifting through my
half-done topics.
