How about in the context of opt assuming myOpt is built as part of
llvm and not a separate plugin. It probably wouldn't be ideal to
modify opt.cpp to do something like..

void addPass(PassManager &PM, Pass *P) {
  if (isa<myOpt>(P) {
    addPass(PM, beforePass);
    addPass(PM, afterPass);

And even then, that only fixes opt.

Perhaps Passes can get to the appropriate PassManager by going through
Pass's virtual assignPassManager method?
