The developers of ECJ are clearly very experienced OO programmers,  
making extensive use of interfaces, inheritance, sophisticated design  
patterns, etc. I'm therefore curious: why are fields generally  
public, rather than accessed via getters and setters as OO orthodoxy  
would suggest? Was this a deliberate decision made in the name of  
convenience or efficiency?
