Subject Re: RIVER-325: Use of socket factory in LookupLocator

LookupLocatorDiscovery would use LookupLocator.getRegistrar() when in fact it 
does not, and recreates all the processing itself and uses introspection to 
reference the getRegistrarMethod for constraints, but otherwise does not call it.

Anyone from Sun have any comments on why getRegistrar() is not used by
