    Why "Ct" prefix?

      Just curious, why are the classes prefixed "Ct"?

          Ct is "Compile Time" since CtClass represents
          a class that has not been loaded into the JVM
          while java.lang.Class represents a runtime class,
          which has been loaded. At first, Javassist could
          not work with a class loader. So Ct was not a
          bad choice.

          I know you will say "Why not Lt (Load time)?"
          I also want to rename so but it's too late.
