Multiple entry points would have more successors than just BB 0. I
wouldn't expect ENTRY to ever have code associated with it. It ought to
be a symbolic representation of flow coming into the function. The
function ought not be able to put code into the ENTRY or EXIT block,
just on edges from ENTRY and to EXIT.  At least in my view..

Any code thats written ought not be assuming block 0 is the first
executed block... or thats a bug. We're suppose to start with successors
