> Just saw this interesting comment in PB code. Since we deal with byte[] extensively (when
we are onheap) we do lot of copies too.
> {code}
> * <p>One of the noticeable costs of copying a byte[] into a new array using
>    * {@code System.arraycopy} is nullification of a new buffer before the copy. It has
been shown
>    * the Hotspot VM is capable to intrisicfy {@code Arrays.copyOfRange} operation to
avoid this
>    * expensive nullification and provide substantial performance gain. Unfortunately
this does not
>    * hold on Android runtimes and could make the copy slightly slower due to additional
code in
>    * the {@code Arrays.copyOfRange}. 
> {code}
> So since we are hotspot VM we could see if the places we use System.arrayCopy can be
replaced with Arrays.copyOfRange.
