[Soot-list] Excluding classes

The -x option merely changes classes (or packages) from being modified
by Soot, by changing them into "library classes". Soot still tries to
load library classes, it just won't process them in any of its
When you allow phantom refs then the resolver will skip classes that
it cannot find, modeling them as "phantom classes". However, all
analyses that you then use have to be aware of these phantom classes
and treat them accordingly. Most analyses within Soot are not designed
with phantom classes in mind.
I hope that answers your questions.
