I've not had time to do any benchmarking unfortunately. I consider this fix to be kind of urgent since the current code is slightly broken. My gut feeling is that it might be slightly slower. It's not anything I've noticed when compiling the JDK though.

My plan is to rewrite the dependency scanning in a similar way, but I consider the dependency scanning and public api scanning to be independent and would therefor like to keep the logic separated in the code.
