Ah, of course the drawback is that you wont be able to propagate it in
all places, so you wont actually get rid of all copies, so you might end
up worse off in some cases...   Im not sure.

 Of course, that means it'll only affect variables that you couldn't
copy propagate at all before this, so you'll be able to do some of the
copy props...   Is it generally a good or bad idea to do as many as
possible knowing you can't do them all?
