Can you explain it further as to why TraceClassLoadingPreorder traces 
should be used rather than the TraceClassLoading traces? I ask because 
we rarely see changes to the *.classlist files and to my knowledge, all 
previous versions used the TraceClassLoading output.

Also, are you planning to update the *.classlist files too? They haven't 
been refreshed in a long time and would be good to get them updated (it 
should also sort out a slew of warnings emitted in the build about 
missing classes).
