> I never knew that classes may not have classloaders, but it turns out they can -in which
case Object.getClass().getClassLoader() will be null "This method will return null in such
implementations if this class was loaded by the bootstrap class loader.""
> When this (rare) situation arises, {{JobConf.findContainingJar()}} NPEs, when failing
with a slightly more useful error message would be preferred.
