 That is, how does it load a class?  Is the job object serialized, along with all the info
necessary to load a class?  
>>> The reason im wondering is that, in all reality, the class im creating will not
be on the classpath of JVM's in a distributed environment.  But indeed, it will exist when
the Job is created .  So Im wondering wether simply "creating"  a dynamic class in side of
the job executioner will be serialized and sent over the wire in such a way that it can be
instantiated in a different JVM or not.
