So why not signal a warning and let the user decide if to proceed? Seems to
me that many people won't be overly concerned with loosing a few temp names
in methods that cannot be compressed accordingly. Attached is a fix that
warns about the problem and gives three choices to proceed:
- Abort operation and keep original sources
- Proceed and replace temps with t1 ... tN
- Proceed and do not warn again
