      Description

      Are there prohibited interactions between RedefineClasses,
      RetransformClasses, and CFLH handlers? For example, could I call
      RetransformClasses from inside my CFLH handler? Circularity would be a
      problem, but what about on a disjoint set of classes? I can imagine an
      agent saying, "Oh, if this class now has characteristic X then I want to
      redefine these others." If this kind of nesting of transactional
      operations makes your head hurt, maybe it should be prohibited explicitly.
