Yeah but it breaks Blanchard's law of code generation.  Dynamic proxies 
basically construct classes and load them on the fly by generating code 
to forward interface calls to implementations.  So the system relies on 
code generation (binary code generation in this case) to do its thing.

Which implies that Java isn't really powerful enough to do whats needed 
as it exists today and you're already scraping up against the wall.
