It's a sensible suggestion.  Until now no one has said it actually stops
them writing the program they want to write.  Thanks for bringing it up
again.  It's not too hard to implement, and I'll try to get to it soon.
It's in the same patch of the compiler as Ross's specialisation request,
so I'll try to do both at once.
