[DEPRECATION] ops which modify registers that are not their direct arguments

The interface contract on ops currently allows them to modify registers that aren't their arguments. This is not particularily useful and makes optimizers harder.

As far as I know, the only ops that modify registers which are not their arguments are clear[insp] and set[insp]_ind. These are also deprecated.

The offending ops have been removed from master.

It is difficult if not impossible to know whether dynops indirectly modify their register frame. However, they would be breaking encapsulation to do so, so they should have no expectation for this to continue working.

Closing ticket.
