Hmmm, yea, I think I remember discussing this in the deep dark past.  And
I think we agreed that (1) is correct (though I also think we decided that
we can't guarantee absolute no semantic changes in an inline function).

I suspect (but certainly haven't confirmed) that the variable inside
the BIND_EXPR is mostly ignored.  When we do look at it, I suspect we
actually look through to the version in the original function to preserve

I could do the same in the useless variable remover, but before doing
so we probably should verify whether or not the remapping in the BIND_EXPR
is valid or not (and that's an area I certainly don't know all that well).
