The .java reader already does this (in fact, I think it was the first
front end to do it). However, this is less useful than you might
think since the existing tree optimization code is C-specific.
The .class reader doesn't build functions as trees. I have an 80%
patch to do this, but I lack the time to finish and debug it :-(
