From that it seems that the only way to do this in a standard manner is
by putting the relevant packages on the java.naming.factory.url.pkgs
system property. The system attempts to instantiate a class in those
packages. This is not modular by design and will not work.
Seems like those 5 lines of glue code are inevitable. It's not a big
problem, thanks for pointing this out.
