Let's pull it for now.  If we come across the need again, we can
obviously revisit with a testcase.

Oh, I think I see what I was missing.  In the case where RHS is a
conditional (or perhaps a SSA_NAME which was set from a PHI) LENRANGE
will have the min/max/# bytes for the RHS was a whole, not just a single
component of the RHS.

I think remove that hunk, bootstrap, test, commit and post for archival
purposes.  I do not think another round of review is necessary.
