   * Used by Betwixt to allow superclasses or interfaces to be subsittuted
   * before an object is introspected. 
   * This allows users to feed in logical interfaces and make Betwixt ignore
   * properties other than those in the interface.
   * It also allows support for <code>Proxy</code>'s.
   * Together, these features allow Betwixt to deal with Entity Beans
   * properly by viewing them through their remote interfaces.
