Much of the removed code seems unnecessary since the same functionality can be accomplished with much simpler code.  An example is provided with ClassForNamePlugin.java (temporary.)  A shipping byte code optimizer plugin will be supplied later.  Additional changes to the plugin API will supply a cross resource resolver that will make byte code optimizing code even simpler.
