It's not fixing user's stupidity.  If you don't follow language rules, 
this is what you can get.  A warning would definitely be very helpful, 
but suppressing optimizations due to this is not the right way to go.

For the cases when the user code cannot be fixed, maybe implementing an 
option like "-fpessimal-aliasing" would help (i.e. assuming that 
everything is aliased with everything).
