I don't think we ever came to a solid decision about which approach
was better.  My patch was simpler, but there may have been other
cases that Alan's patch handled that mine didn't.

I do think we all agreed that (subreg (mem)) was evil :-)

I think the fact that unrelated changes masked all these issues and
as a result this has been largely ignored for the last few years.
