I can write this, if it really appears a good idea.  Could use a
URLClassLoader that doesn't delegate to the classpath or extensions loader,
so that misconfiguration there cannot hurt you.  If we did this it should be

the classpath or extensions can still do so.  Also, it would have to be
_very_ well doc'ed, or we would just be replacing one confusion with
