The resulting code does show what is going on more clearly.  I
wonder if we can do the same for -S as well?  It needs to be passed
to other backends, so I guess it is not such a good idea.

Yes, this is much nicer.

Yes, this is very nice way to first collect and then inspect them
separately.

Overall very nicely done.  Perhaps we'll see a test or two from
Philip?

Thanks.
