      Description

      Proxy classes appear to be a better way to implement the virtual classes created by annotations. This isn't a requirement of the spec and could possibly lower
      performance.

      There's more info in the new Classpath Sun compatibility file:
      http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewcvs/classpath/sun/reflect/annotation/AnnotationInvocationHandler.java?rev=1.1.4.1&root=classpath&view=markup

      We should look into this as its highly likely we don't have correctly serializable annotations.

            We can't use Proxy classes until we properly support them.
