I was one of them.  I suggested adding general predication to the LLVM
IR but that doesn't look like it's going to happen.  Dan Gohman had
another idea on how to represent predicate masks but that also didn't
relaly go anywhere.

None of your proposed solutions is ideal.  We really should have
first-class predication in the IR.  It's only going to get more
