I don't quite get the point of the ClassListExerciser test. The 
classlist may well contain classes that do not exist, or that can not be 
instantiated in the test context, even if they have a no-arg 
constructor. Simply creating an archive "exercises" the classlist, so 
I'm really not sure what this test is intending to test.

Also this test won't work with SE Embedded as we have a customized 
default classlist for the Embedded stack.
