Is there any thought about creating a new WeakIdentityHashMap which can be used 
in places where classloaders and other dynamic bindings are in use.  I've not 
looked into this at any depth yet, but there are some places where WeakHashMap 
are used in the Jini 2.1 codebase which I've been looking at to do some 
contention reduction.  The use of distributed key based locks in 
ConcurrentHashMap is nice for things related to threading, ClassLoader and 
ProtectionDomain issues where multiple unrelated users are active at one time.
