In relation to my previous post, that may make sense since Java byte-codes
are at a slightly "higher-level" that the raw x86 instructions of a
compiled program, hence giving the morpher more information to work with.
It would be interesting to compare the morphing of Java byte-codes against
the very same program generated with a native Java x86 compiler.
