Call indexing performance improvement #180

When generating the CallIndex, call targets are converted to strings. This is to allow matching of known call targets against regexes. However, Brakeman was converting all call targets (including huge Sexps) to strings. This was taking up time and memory (I saw a big garbage collector improvement with this change) and it was pointless.

Should help with issue #171

One app I tested this on, which was taking a long time to index call sites, went from ~3.5 minutes to ~2 minutes.

Only convert call target to string if symbol
The only thing this is used for is matching regexes
against known call targets. We only want to store these
strings if the call target is a symbol, not a full Sexp.
Big performance improvement for large apps.
