My experience has led me to a different conclusion: maintenance of a
program can be simplified by reducing the interdependence of parts,
such as by copying code rather than making it into subroutines.  I
used that principle to make GCC easier to understand and maintain--I
would often copy a minor function into another pass and rename it
rather than trying to call into one pass from another.  Another
benefit is that one file can be changed without worrying about its
effects on another file.

Stefan, would you please copy these functions?
