I don't understand what you mean here.  I'm asking for the target uses
of no_new_pseudos to be kept the same -- with no_new_pseudos defined as
a macro, if necessary -- whereas Kenny is trying to get rid of them.
Surely getting rid of something is a more extensive change than keeping
it?  Especially since Kenny often says that changing the backend is not
something he's particularly comfortable doing.  What Alex and I are
suggesting seems to require fewer backend changes.
