Oh, I'd say sorry to you and Andrew both.
I had though you are the maintainer... ...
So I am currently thinking that maybe it is not hard to make the callgraph more accurate
in a similar way DSA deals with indirect callsites.
I am just curious about why it is not already in LLVM.
I think identifying the range of an indirect call is a worthwhile job,
for example if we want to track the correctness of a program's control flow
with the possibility that it is being attacked through buffer overflow.
