I'm absolutely in favour of this (although -- no, because! -- it makes
the mock efforts superflous).

This is an open *source* project, and a couple of things are a lot
easier to do at compile time rather than at run time.

Note that the mocks are still needed to enable everyone to modify them
and still have the compiler or the IDE do syntax checks without
downloading the additional jars which might not be possible in some
cases.
