I've been kicking around the idea of using a single fake register to transfer byte and word data around. The idea is that real registers cannot copy bytes to word and so all conversions must use the fake register. This fake register cannot do any actual work, and we can optimize it away during the peepholes.

I don't know if this will work any better than the other attempts, but I've got a good feeling about it.
