I think I remember us talking about there being some provision for 
accessing the vendor-specific VM constructs that implement the heap, 
etc., in addition to the Java objects in it.  Will that be done by, for 
example, casting a JavaVM to a HotSpotVM and using the latter's extra 

Also, I'm seeing methods that return Iterator with no type (e.g. in 
JavaMethod).  Is that just a temporary placeholder which will ultimately 
get a type?
