How clean are the separations between packages/groups of packages in
i.e. how possible would it be to use say java.sql.* with another
implementation of java.lang?

I ask this as I'm just wondering if having the ClassLoader select from
multiple implementations based on user preference for that package would
be a good idea or just an added complication.

I see this as being of most use with the two cases you listed of
specialist users and using native implementations.

I suppose it possibly should be handled by the base ClassLib that contains
the ClassLoader Class rather than at the primordial ClassLoader level.
