You are in the right ball park. An idea that I discussed briefly with Jim
was to create an implementation of ConcreteName that relies on information
from Java reflection. This will cut down on footprint, be quicker that
re-parsing byte-code and guarantee the correct type. However your approach
is an excellent first step. Can you send me a code snippet and I will try
to add it to 31460.
