That is no reason to have an edge in the flow graph. All function-calls
'exit' the function. So we might need copy's at every function location,
returning or not.
I Dont see any reason why we need an edge of any sort from a
non-returning call to the exit block. I fail to see how it makes
anything easier. you have to go look for all function calls, this edge
doesn't help that.
