Can someone tell me why HotSpot calls ClassLoader.loadClassInternal
instead of loadClass directly?  There's no magic in that method:

    // This method is invoked by the virtual machine to load a class.
    private synchronized Class loadClassInternal(String name)
	throws ClassNotFoundException
	return loadClass(name);

Some magic hiden in HotSpot?
