// This file contains the declaration of the BasicBlock class, which represents
// a single basic block in the VM.
// Note that basic blocks themselves are Value's, because they are referenced
// by instructions like branches and can go in switch tables and stuff...
// Note that well formed basic blocks are formed of a list of instructions
// followed by a single TerminatorInst instruction.  TerminatorInst's may not
// occur in the middle of basic blocks, and must terminate the blocks.
// This code allows malformed basic blocks to occur, because it may be useful
// in the intermediate stage modification to a program.
