I think it would bee cool to have remote class loading, but I'm not 
sure about using the RMI wire protocol for this.  I would expand the 
OpenEJB protocol to support remote class loading, and I believe IIOP 
has special hooks to do remote class loading javax.rmi.CORBA.Util, 
which in OpenEJB delegates to org.openejb.corba.util.UtilDelegateImpl.
