Thanks for the pointer. As I am using sparecode as one of the steps in
my plugin, I would expect to get this for free. However, I see that
optim_if is never called in such a way that it interprets constant 1 --
it only eliminates the if statement if there is no condition, which
seems to occur if the if statement itself is set to non-visible. 

I see that I could use the functor to get the result that I want. But I
wonder whether this would be a useful enhancement, either in
or in sparecode?
