I want to have the option of switching between semi-pruned and
pruned.  Some heuristic that says something like "oh, hell, no
way we are inserting a gazillion PHI nodes in this graph".

I had forgotten about #2, but now that you mention both Cytron
and Briggs show the GVN example.  I found references supporting
having all three forms (IBM's Jikes RVM).
