Actually yes. I did it to show that ipaa info is kept and can be used.
If there was oracle (may_alias_p, or any one else) into which this
info can be integrated, I would use it. But for now such oracle does
not exist and when it does I will gladly remove this code.

By the way, for now the vectorizer does not use may_alias_p
(the latest code in autovect branch). It actually use type_mem_tag and
is_aliased_with function in which may_aliases field is used.
Do you think it will stay so, and ipaa info will be
incorporated in may_aliases/type_mem_tag, or alternatively, it will
be oracle like may_alias_p that will be called directly by vectorizer?
