There's no need to widen canonical induction variables. It's just as efficient to create a *new*, wide, induction variable.
Consider, if we widen an indvar, then we'll have to truncate it before its uses anyway (1 trunc). If we create a new indvar instead, we'll have to truncate that instead (1 trunc) [besides which IndVars should go and clean up our mess after us anyway on principle].
This lets us remove a ton of special-casing code.
