I wouldn't characterize this as a band-aid. And I doubt that I would  
advocate a different approach to solving this problem in a 2.0.x  

FYI, at present, cxf-based web services client code requires access  
to Spring classes from the application's ClassLoader. So, even if you  
wanted to completely isolate the application ClassLoader from system  
ClassLoaders, this must be changed. I probably could have narrowed my  
request a bit by saying can we just fix this web services client code  
dependency -- better, I think to remove the spring dependency all  
together from our cxf module.
