Sometimes is more usefull to have fine control.
I think it may be better to just change the order - i.e. the loader
should default to 'delegate' for everything but be able to exclude
specific packages ( right now it is the reverse ). 

What's important is to support the MANIFEST entries - and for that
it may be needed to override some of the stuff from the common

Now - if you are going to work on that, it may be a good idea to 
try to move the loader in a separate dir ( commons-style ) and 
merge the 2 loaders ( there's a lot of duplicated code ). I'm not
saying to move it in commons yet, but at least have it useable
independently. I would love to add few hooks and use it in ant...
