public static class MetaClassRegistry.MetaClassCreationHandle extends Object
Class used as base for the creation of MetaClass implementations. The Class defaults to MetaClassImpl, if the class loading fails to find a special metaclass.

By replacing the handle in the registry you can have any control over the creation of what MetaClass is used for a class that you want to have. WARNING: experimental code, likely to change soon
