That happens anyway if you don't have the sources handy. However, the 
bytecode compiler is so simple that reverse engineering of the code is 
automatic. You just loose the local var names and everything is referred 
to as t1, t2, t3, etc. Instance variable names are hardwired into the 
dictionaries, I believe, so they remain available.
