> org.apache.bcel.generic.Instruction contains two strange methods: equals and setComparator.
The equals and hashCode methods are by definition (see http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/lang/Object.html#hashCode%28%29
) broken:
> * If two Instruction objects have another InstructionComparator, they can be asymmetrically
equal.
> * If instructions aren't compared by identity (==), the inherited hashCode method is
by definition broken.
> I suggest: deprecate setComparator method.
