Can you forward me the simple isolated test you ran? I will see if we can get it up with
the VFS3 classloader. Then we can get an idea if there are any gains from the VFS3 impl.

Just did some profiling of determineAllPackages in a simple isolated
test with jacorb.jar (4.58M)
Test took 747ms.
51% was within initEntries (ZipEntryContext) (VFS 2.2.0Alpha1)
11.3% was in VFS.getVFS()
7.8% was in VFS.getRoot()
9% of time was used in determineAllPackages.
The rest was just org.jboss.test initialization.
So, it may not be determineAllPackages itself, but the initialization of
Beyond optimizing VFS, it doesn't make much sense, IMO, to use the VFS
at all for jboss system, subsystem, component, jars. They don't need to
be scanned for anything as all information/metadata can be
pre-initialized and stored within the jar in a config file.
