Interesting idea, but it can only be applied in very specific circumstances. It's not suitable for patching classes - even if the method to be patched could be unambiguously identified (the approach only works for them because there is only one method with the given signature in the class), simply going ahead and modifying bytecode that has not been manually examined is a lot like playing russian roulette.

BTW, I am already using something (roughly) similar here.
