Although I don't think impertive optimizations at this high of a level
will benefit much for how much they cost, after the code has been
processed and is in cmm form or about to be I think there is a lot of
room for improvement. even a few basic optimizations there can help.
ideally we would rely on gcc, but it seems to fall down on a lot of code
that ghc generates.
