You can do the same thing.
You just need names.
If you look at the ssa-ccp patch i submitted, you'll note i added a 
unique id number to each ref, and use it in the following way to give an 
ssa name:
For a phi or a def, the ssa name is the id number.
For a use, the ssa name is the id number of the associated def.
This gives you the same "name" an explicit renamed representation would 
give you, but we still haven't rewritten any code.
Now, just insert real copies for the fake phis, and you are golden. (IE 
converting *out* of fud chains of course, could require real code 
I'm assuming you keep the definitions/uses/phi links updated 
approriately, which is where the real pain lies.

You could actually probably get away with only inserting copies for 
modified phis (making sure you remove arguments for defs that no longer
