Yeah, maybe âinvariant_pâ is a misnomer.  The thinking is that, if we
preserve a value, we preserve other values based on it, and we do
preserve values with equivalences to avoid having to carry the
equivalences in the var-tracking dataflow sets.

I thought completeness called for retaining those equivalences, but now
I see that, since they're always going to be computed values, rather
than locations, the constant value provides sufficient and better
information for completeness, rendering them irrelevant indeed.  I'll
put that hunk back in and retest.
