I know, but for memory consumption reasons everyone should prefer just passing an InputStream. Is the memory consumption with `ClassFile.of().parse(Path)` any better (i.e. are you using a `java.io.RandomAccessFile` or `java.nio.channels.SeekableByteChannel` under the hood)? I think that deserves a sentence in the javadoc.
