OpenEJB sends the string to the client and sometimes gets a string back 
(ejbs are indexed by number for speed).  When a string comes back it is 
looked up directly into a hash, keyed on the string.  The means that 
OpenEJB clients do not see any Geronimo code.  If GBeanNames were used, 
then the client would need a GBeanName class.
