I meant to remove that comment.  The instmaps are no longer
completely bogus.  However, they are also not completely correct
either at this stage -- uniqueness information may be wrong and needs
to be fixed up after `inst_merge' has been called for all non-local
variables.  This is done by `instmap__merge_3'.  I'll add a comment to
explain this.
