you're joking right???

This is not just about code duplication - I was just responding to the
suggestion that my proposal is more complex or more code. The main issue
that I started talking about is that the type hierarchy is wrong.

Eg. If we don't have a common geronimo.ejb.EJB class for Session, Entity
and Message, then we can't write any code that deals with these beans in
common - eg we are going to have to write the marshalling code 3 times, etc. etc.

If the geronimo classes don't implement/extend the standard classes then
we can't pass them into any class that takes the standard classes.

So I am not proposing change based on code volume - I'm proposing change
because the design is currently not correct.

whatever.... I give up
