Ok  we'll wait and see what Andrew says. The only one that I'm not happy
with is Bytecode.hashCode, because rewrite always seems to be an empty array
at the point when generateHashCode is called so it's a bit misleading using
it. I think it should be ok to just remove that line, and still cache the
hashCode.
