It's also brittle in that it's tied to what version # variables get, what
address temporaries get and the like.  Those are the primary reasons I
didn't go that route when starting to build out the tree-ssa optimization

After working with the tree-ssa optimization tests for a while some
of their limitations are clearer.  The most glaring one is that we 
can't easily do things like code motion tests.
