If you're really clever, you'd do this completely in Java by
subclassing ClassLoader and overriding loadClass() to instrument
each class file with new bytecodes at the beginning of each method
to print out any String arguments.

But that's probably damn near impossible.. :-)

Brings up a good question.. has anyone defined a "Bytecode" class
that would let you more easily do things like this?
