I was adding this to the list of reasons why we could not use 
java.reflection.Proxy. Yes, you mentioned that you needed to generate 
abstract classes, but those unfamiliar with the java.reflection.Proxy 
class may not know that it can only handle interfaces.

Just reconfirming what you said we'd need but emphasising why Proxy 
won't do.
