Backports to 4.5 would indeed be nice, but the target here is to improve 
vectorization upstream.

Also, the list in the task was just ideas to get started on, there's no 
reason to limit investigations to that list, if it turns out to be 
incomplete - it's not like it was written with any real effort.
