I have a question on this one - maybe it's best addressed specifically
to John Rose though, and please forgive my relatively shallow
understanding of the JIT and this new AOT compiler.
Does the AOT compiler depend on knowing all possible entry points into
certain methods? Is it possible for things like --add-exports with
reflection, which change the set of known entry points into the code, to
cause unexpected operation? I saw no mention of these things on the JEP
page but it was my understanding that AOT compilation depends on this
kind of information.
