Oy!  Do you remember How/Where is that done? Because the EntityComposite
type is added to the EntityDescriptor and must be done that way (or the
Entity object with instanceof) and not be checking the Java interfaces.
That could be the root of many problems.

The other change is that identity is now a type and not String, and
somewhere that might cause problems.

Rewrite; Yeah, I have been considering this for a while. And perhaps build
something by leveraging QueryDSL (http://www.querydsl.com/), or at least
borrow internals for it. But I concluded that it was more work than fit
into 3.0 plan. But I would be really happy to get to a situation where we
have "ES backed indexer", which would help a lot going forward. The RDF
implementation is also getting "old"...
