Not in this case, as the classloader created in Launcher contains all
that's been in the CLASSPATH already itself.  It will find all classes
the system classloader can find itself.  Except for the bootstrap
class loader, that is.

Sure, that's the other option - along with telling people to use Main
instead of Launcher if they need the old behavior (like Gump or maybe
the IDE integration folks).
