   Sure, but it's almost impossible to do this at once.


   At the very beginning, it's possible to "overestimate" barrier
   assuming that each XVAR (obj, field) changes FIELD in OBJ; in the
   future, reads and writes may be separated, thus giving a precise
   write barrier.

I think you're saying that you prefer to do:

a1. substitute object access (whether LHS or RHS) w/ XVAR (obj, field)
a2. distinguish LHS (which could benefit from optimization) from RHS
a3. substitue LHS ‘XVAR (...) = value’ w/ SETVAR (obj, field, value)

instead of:

b1. distinguish LHS (which could benefit from optimization) from RHS
b2. substitute LHS object access w/ SETVAR (obj, field, value)
b3. substitute RHS object access w/ XVAR (obj, field)

Is my understanding correct?
