The present DFA doesn't work for code which uses exceptions, including implicit exception handling 
(read: a good 50% of all codebase).
In the meantime I tried adapting DFA, or more precisely, definite assignment analyzer, from Mono 
compiler (Mantis #15523). It uses a different approach, which works fine with exceptions, but is not 
suited well (if at all) for determining live range of variables. See notes on Mantis #15523 for details.
With #15523 applied, the compiler can be cycled, but it emits hundreds of warnings which have to be 
fixed because cycling is done with -Sew these days. In particular, we have to solve the FillChar() 
issue before any DFA is enabled by default.
