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.
