	You repeatedly assert that it loses information, but the
information is not helpful because there is no distinction.  This has
become a campaign for its own sake.

	So far all I read is complaints from you and Richard, but no
offers to implement your more extensive proposal in the next few weeks.
You simply are making demands that volunteers implement more extensive
transformation.  This is a giant Bike Shed preventing incremental
improvement in GCC.

	The proposed patch is not wrong.  Arguing about it and trying to
block it serves no useful purpose.
