Sure, no problem.  We already do all the asm voodoo in the ClassFinder  
constructor and the ClassInfo object you were calling the get() method  
on is part of the resulting metadata we collected from ASM.  The code  
you have could be adapted to call methods of ClassInfo instead of  
Class.  I'd call ClassFinder.isAnnotationPresent() real quick before  
doing a search just to see if it's worth the time.  It will be limited  
unfortunately to situations where the parent class containing the  
annotation is in scope of the ClassFinder (i.e. if they put it in a  
different jar and classfinder wasn't told to look there, then it won't  
come up as having that annotation as we won't have asm data for it).
