The JavapUtils code is ugly.  (I know because I added it.)  If BCEL
provides a better way to get at the debug information then we should use

A big +1 from me.

Glen, please make sure the code continues to work with methods that have
array parameters and return values.

I just revamped JavapUtils to stop using javap and start using BCEL (  The main benefits of this are speed and
resource conservation (we no longer have to spawn a process to get the arg
names from debug info in class files, and we can operate in environments
where javap isn't around).  It means one more jar to deal with.  I think
this is a very worthwhile tradeoff.  Any objections to my checking this in?
