yes. it should be named copyWithTrailer: instead,
but since at the time i introducing trailers there was only bytes, i
had to preserve the name
for compatibility (among other things).
Btw, if you look at CompiledMethod, there's a lot of things which can
For example all code which managing sourcePointer(s) and SourceFiles,
not belongs to CompiledMethod.
It should reside somewhere in SourceFileArray (or its subclass).
