Cool. I didn't know you were on this list.  I really love cglib.  It is 
easy to use and super fast.

For this case we need to do reflective calls on the public methods of a 
target instance.  Right now I just create a MethodProxy for each method 
we want to call and I keep that proxy in a hash map (BTW do you know of 
a faster map style data structure available?) by name with a bunch of 
other information we need for the invocation.   If I could generate a 
single class that for the entire target, I think that would be better.  
I thinking of something I can use like this:

   ReflectiveProxy myReflectiveProxy = 
   MethodProxy methodProxy = 
   methodProxy.invoke(instance, args);

I'm not sure this is possible to do this and be fast.  I'm concerned 
about generated code being able locate the correct method to call 
quickly (quicker than a hash map).

On another issue, since we own the class loader implementation class, 
is there some interface we can add to have your dynamic classes loaded 
directly by our classloader instead of a sub classloader?
