If the CheckCastPP is in the caller, then replace_in_map replaces the
input of the CheckCastPP with the CheckCastPP in the caller's map. That
improvement is done before the callee is called so is valid in the
callee too. When parsing exits the callee, no replacement happens
(CheckCastPP is not a new node in the callee) but there shouldn't be any
to do because replace_in_map already modified the caller's map before
the callee was parsed. When parsing exits the caller, replacement
happens in the caller's caller map (the CheckCastPP is a new node). So
the caller's caller, the caller and the callee should all see the
improved nodes, right?
