Okay, sounds good.  Then what should we return for the metadata "class name"? 
Esp. ResultSetMetaData.getColumnClassName()?

The API for that method says:

"Returns the fully-qualified name of the Java class whose instances are 
manufactured if the method ResultSet.getObject  is called to retrieve a value 
from the column."

So should a call to that method fail, too?
