Hi Eric, 

Thanks for the suggestion.  No, because this is not the kind of loop-unrolling that the loop-unroller does. The term is overloaded. The loop unroller does not handle reduction variables, it does not check for memory safety across iterations, and it does not model register pressure. This is something completely different.
