+<p>You may have noticed that the previous example was a bit
+oversimplified in that it did not deal with call sites generated by
+'invoke' instructions. In this, and in other situations, you may find
+that you want to treat <tt>CallInst</tt>s and <tt>InvokeInst</tt>s the
+same way, even though their most-specific common base class is
+<tt>Instruction</tt>, which includes lots of less closely-related
+things. For these cases, LLVM provides a handy wrapper class called <a
+</tt></a>.  It is essentially a wrapper around an <tt>Instruction</tt>
+pointer, with some methods that provide functionality common to
+<tt>CallInst</tt>s and <tt>InvokeInst</tt>s.</p>
+<p>This class is supposed to have "value semantics". So it should be
+passed by value, not by reference; it should not be dynamically
+allocated or deallocated using <tt>operator new</tt> or <tt>operator
+delete</tt>. It is efficiently copyable, assignable and constructable,
+with costs equivalents to that of a bare pointer. (You will notice, if
+you look at its definition, that it has only a single data member.)</p>
