Full commit
This is optional support code for backends: it finds which cycles
in a graph are likely to correspond to source-level 'inner loops'.

    # Heuristic (thanks Stakkars for the idea):
    # to find the "best" cycle to pick,
    #   * look for variables that don't change over the whole cycle
    #   * cycles with _more_ of them are _inside_ cycles with less of them,
    #     because any variable that doesn't change over an outer loop will
    #     not change over an inner loop either, and on the other hand the
    #     outer loop is likely to use and modify variables that remain
    #     constant over the inner loop.
    #   * if the numbers are the same, fall back to a more arbitrary
    #     measure: loops involving less blocks may be more important
    #     to optimize
    #   * in a cycle, which block is the head of the loop?  Somewhat
    #     arbitrarily we pick the first Bool-switching block that has
    #     two exits.  The "first" means the one closest to the
    #     startblock of the graph.
