What is this and is this something the user would notice?  Also, is  
this something that can be fixed or is this just the way it works?

Can I force the generated value to materialize somehow, and as above  
is this something that we can fix?

Super cool!  I can't wait to read that code over.

We do, but there are some embedded cases where a class can be loaded  
before we are even launched.  So how do you get ahold of the  
Instrumentation instance (so you can call redefine) if your agent  
isn't loaded?
