Subject Re: Lossless cast

RexUtil.gatherConstraint deals with “widening” casts, which are similar. (Every widening
cast is lossless, but not every lossless cast is widening.)

But I don’t see an actual method, with unit tests, that tests for lossless casts. (The obvious
places to look would be RexUtil and RexProgramTest.) Feel free to add one. It would be useful.
