Currently, due to excessive use of static data, javadoc can only (reliably) be executed once in a JVM.  Subsequent attempts to use it may be "polluted" by earlier attempts. (E.g. options).

javadoc should be serially reusable.

EVALUATION Change is covered by running existing tests in samevm mode

EVALUATION Reduce use of static instances.
