Detailed Description

This file declares a special form of Alias Analysis called ``Provenance Analysis''.

The word ``provenance'' refers to the history of the ownership of an object. Thus ``Provenance Analysis'' is an analysis which attempts to use various techniques to determine if locally

WARNING: This file knows about certain library functions. It recognizes them by name, and hardwires knowledge of their semantics.

WARNING: This file knows about how certain Objective-C library functions are used. Naive LLVM IR transformations which would otherwise be behavior-preserving may break these assumptions.
