I'm closing this as "wontfix" because it's not really possible to fix this
without rearchitecting the bytecode reader.  The problem is that there is no way
for PATypeHandle's to be "null", so they need to be initialized to something. 
OpaqueType's are extremely cheap to create anyway, so the approach taken in the
bytecode reader is not at all unreasonable: it's not clear that an alternative
would make the reader faster.
