      Description

      lava.lang.instrument package info (src/java.instrument/share/classes/java/lang/instrument/package-info.java) says:
      ====
       * Provides services that allow Java programming language agents to instrument
       * programs running on the JVM. The mechanism for instrumentation is modification
       * of the byte-codes of methods.
       *
       * <p> Note: developers/admininstrators are responsible for verifying
       * the trustworthiness of content and structure of the Java Agents they deploy,
       * since those are able to arbitrarily transform the bytecode from other JAR files.
       * Since that happens after the Jars containing the bytecode have been verified
       * as trusted, the trustworthiness of a Java Agent can determine the trust towards
       * the entire program.
       *
       * <p> An agent is deployed as a JAR file. An attribute in the JAR file manifest
      ====

      i.e. note about content of the jar file precedes info that agents are deployed as JAR files.

      Also need to make consistent "JAR"/"Jar"
