Summary0000448: singleton warning generation ignores variables in quantifications
DescriptionThe problem is that quantification replaces the list of variables being quantified
by a scope, ostensibly because that information is not needed by later compiler
passes. However, it *is* needed by the code that generates warnings for singleton

As it is, we get bad singleton warnings for code such as

    some [X] ( ... X ... )

and may NOT get singleton warnings for code such as

    some [X] ( ... code in which there is no variable named X ... )
Steps To ReproduceThe two halves of the problem are demonstrated by the test cases
valid/bad_singleton_warning.m and warnings/missing_singleton_warning.m,
which I just added to the repository.
Additional InformationSimply keeping the quantified variables in place causes problems for later passes;
it is such code in these later passes that are the actual bugs.
