What do you mean by "aliasing"?
I'm pretty sure that the Fortran standards actually make very explicit
guarantees about "aliasing". I seem to recall that Fortran guarantees
that different references may not overlap in memory in any way without
explicitly stating such. Thus, Fortran can still optimize much more
aggressively than most other languages.
