That's probably dead code at this point.  IIRC rth did further work in 
this space because inserting in the end of the block with the abnormal 
edge isn't semantically correct.

It's been 20+ years, but IIRC he adjusted the PRE bitmaps so that we 
never would need to do an insertion on an abnormal edge.  Search for 
EDGE_ABNORMAL in gcse.cc.
