it is unfortunately not straightforward unless you are copying a region
with just a single exit edge (then you can just rename the defined
variables, put appropriate phi nodes at this exit, and you are done).
If there is more than one exit, you end up with insertion of new
definitions on arbitrary places over the cfg, for which probably the
only solution is to run the ordinary ssa construction algorithm just for
these names (IIRC we already have this, or at least something easily
modifiable for this purpose, in tree-ssa.c). This seems like a feasible
solution, especially if it is only used either after copying larger
regions (like loop bodies), or after doing all the copying (like in
