// This pass implements an _extremely_ simple interprocedural constant
// propagation pass.  It could certainly be improved in many different ways,
// like using a worklist.  This pass makes arguments dead, but does not remove
// them.  The existing dead argument elimination pass should be run after this
// to clean up the mess.
