Yea, but the repackaging is actually a relatively simple solution to try 
first if the classloader solution gets gnarly simply because the only 
code in the universe that will be using the class

lacking in "magic" that could create nasty bugs or be confusing for 
difficult debugging situation.

Lots of options here...
