Class literal woes

In Bitten by the class literal change in Tiger Michael Nascimento writes about the surprising impact of JDK5 changing the rules for Foo.class. As simple as that.

Amazing how such a small change can have ramifications. This is food for thought when making a "small change" as I often do while cleaning old code: How can it make a difference? should be asked as a real question, not as gesture to shrug off the nay-sayers.

May I follow my own advice!
