Seems I can't. If I add:

    Class<?>[] members = getNestMembers0();
+  assert(members[0] == getNestHost0()); // expected invariant from VM

then the VM crashes during the build. Seems to hit a recursive attempt 
to throw an exception from Class.<clinit> then crashes when we exhaust 
the stack. :(

I see other asserts in Class so I'm at a loss to understand why mine 
causes a problem. ??
