there are a few in the back ends that will require some thought.  most
are trivial. 

There appears to be an idiom, (or at least a chunk of code that has been
heavily copied) where *_output_mi_thunk sets reload_completed and
no_new_pseudos at the top and clears them at the bottom. 

This appears to be the majority of the not trivial places to change and
an explanation by a trained professional would be helpful and greatly
appreciated.
