But let's be clear: we're not talking about whether QA should review code. We're talking about whether some independent entity should review it.
In general though, I see much more value in having other developers do it. Preferably, other devs on the same team, or maybe on other teams likely to interact with that code in the near future. There may be some value in having an independent team do it as well - maybe. But only in addition to having regular developers do it, I think.
If you mean other project team (luckily working on the same technology) by saying 'new entity' then only it makes sense other wise having a new guy/team for code review is impractical and not economical. She/Team has to cope up with the business functionality, technology and what not. Ideally they are just any other developer in the team (better than developers) but not doing any development but code review only.

I think in gmail application, the redirection happens like this(this is my assumption, there may be better approaches than this),
Here attributes 'paramOne' and 'paramTwo' are set some where in the application.

ok Anselm your thinking is correct.
As you said "book on compilers can explain" but SCJP exam also want to test whether given code will compile or not and can test output of given code probably given question is based on SCJP objective.
When I solved some mock exams they want to test how many number of errors in the given code or at which number of line/lines the compiler will show error and you have to choose appropriate answer.
You can go through Sun Microsystem's web site and attend pre-assesment mock exam for SCJP5.0 or SCJP6.0, it's free.Simply go through that mock test you will find it.
So if we know how compiler think about java code then it's helpful in the SCJP exam as well as real world programming.
If SCJP aspirant is new to java programming language then he or she can know about it through SCJP preparation and can excel in SCJP exam.
That is the reason I am suggesting to include it in the appendix of the book. It is not mandatory to include it in the book.
But as Khalid said lexical translation explaination acheived by interactive tool.
I hope this clears
