I propose that the time has come to drop cglib support.  Over the past
few months we have run into a number of bugs in cglib for which we have
sent Chris et al patches.  However, none of them have been applied.  I
think the bigger indication is that I just don't even get replies any
more.  For whatever reasons I think they are just no longer interested
in or no longer have the time for developing cglib.

So I think we should focus on javassist support.

We should also consider dropping support/integraton of other "dead"
* swarmcache 
* oscache - is oscache still deveoloped?  anyone still use it via the
hibernate intg?

caching-wise that would leave support for ehcache, infinispan and
jbosscache all 3 of which i know are still actively developed and are
very active in terms of hibernate integration work.
