I'm not very happy with the current way this is implemented.  I guess  
my fundamental point of view is that shading is only needed when you  
don't have good classloaders such as osgi or (some version of) the  
geronimo ones.  I don't think the core xbean libraries should make  
such assumptions about classloaders but should assume good classloading.

So I'd prefer that the core xbean libraries use plan asm and that we  
provide shaded xbean libraries that use the shaded asm jar.  If no one  
objects I'm happy to set this up.
