The classmapping mechanism is really intended for people Who Really  
Know What They Are Doing And Don't Mind The Classes Being Broken From  
Version To Version But Would Like To Extend The Code Without Having  
To Re-Patch Every Version.  So when I created it, I didn't look too  
deeply on which classes were final and which weren't.

What is the reason to make them final?  Are there any potential  
security issues?
