Subject Re: WARNING: very big commit coming later today....
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2009 18:46:23 GMT

OK.  "Part 1"  (I have more ideas) is in.   A "default" bus has gone from over 
55 beans created and initialized down to 12.   Startup time for the first Bus 
has dropped from 2.1 seconds on my machine to 0.9.   After the jit warms up 
and classes loaded and such, subsequent Bus creation has dropped from 105ms to 
about 60.     

Obviously, a default bus isn't much use now as nothing is loaded and doing 
pretty much anything is going to start triggering other parts to load in.  
Thus, a "full" startup isn't as dramatic, but it's definitely a good start.
