To answer part of my own question, the RMIClassLoaderSpi provider must
be in the system classloader.  Worse yet, the provider is instaniated
and assigned to a private static final in RMIClassLoader.

It works in OpenEJB because it has geronimo-core in the manifest
class-path of it's server.jar, I just need to add that to Geronimo's
server.jar as well.

As far as the other question of who relies on it, it's hard to tell...

  -- The RMIClassLoaderSpi is supplied on the command line
  -- The RMIRegistryService is in the system package
  -- The RMIClassLoaderSpiImpl is in the core package
  -- The JMXConnector in jmxremoting seems to be the only thing that
     actually breaks when the above three things go wrong.
