Thank you!!  I found your analysis very helpful.  I will stick with
the IntMaps until and unless things reach a stage where they look
really ugly.

Good to know.  I would still like to have a simple Haskell example
that generates an irreducible control-flow graph, but for now I can
just write them by hand using .cmm files.

BTW *every* control-flow graph has at least one reverse-postorder
numbering, whether it is reducible or not.
