You're right to be confused, because that seems to be a bug in the
existing code.  There seems to be no guarantee that the cheapest
parallel-safe path will be in the cheapest_parameterized_paths list.
I'll go fix that.

As a matter of style, when testing a value of type "bool", write if
(x) or if (!x).  When testing a variable of some other type, say int,
write if (x == 0) or if (x != 0) or whatever.
