Tooting my own horn, but, anything in #gccbug I consider to be verified
to -not- be hiding a real bug. Human-verified not machine-verified, of
course, so it's imperfect. But at least it's been reviewed and
considered carefully.

I'll look into "tarting up" #gccbug for upstream... I had missed the
introduction of uninitialized_var(), which was the genesis for this line
of questioning.
