It uses the same code as the paranoid classloader, i.e. it searches 
locally first and then asks the parent classloader. We can make this 
configurable, although IMO this is the policy that most makes sense in 
this use case.

Using this feature will certainly give us a good jumpstart to discover 
all the good and bad things related to segmented classloading and hot 
reload and find what needs to be fixed or changed.

I can only say that my life as a developer has changed since yesterday 
evening ;-)
