Sebb commented on BCEL-239:
---------------------------

Note: I've just checked, and code can update entries in a final array defined in an interface.

> Interfaces should not be used to define constants.
> This is often done as a way to save typing the name of a class that defines the constants.
However using an interface pollutes any implementing classes with all the constant names,
even if they are not used.
> This issue applies to
> Constants
> ExceptionConstants
> InstructionConstants
