How "no"? Just because the compiler produces bad code doesn't mean gas needs to
correct it. Identical hand-written code like this absolutely needs to be
diagnosed. As since there's no way to tell hand written code from compiler
generated one, the fix will need to be in the compiler (otherwise I might
accept us adjusting things for the compiler's sake).

This is a different problem, and indeed wants fixing.
