we can still make stubs, just not for javac then. Another application 
would be to use the stubs for javadoc.

The big difference is when we do the stubs. Because in those cases there 
is no need to create them at the phase they are currently created in. 
Instead we can do the complete transformation of the AST and then make 
all the action transforms did visible.
