Sub Tasks

Description
Tools that use bytecode instrumentation must, in some cases, have the instrumentation code loaded by the bootstrap class loader.  Currently that can only be done by appending to this path which can only be done in the OnLoad phase.  With 'attach on demand' this capability becomes more important.
