> There are 70 odd classes in the generic directory that have empty constructors with the
following comment:
>      * Empty constructor needed for the Class.newInstance() statement in
>      * Instruction.readInstruction(). Not to be used otherwise.
> Class.newInstance() is no longer called, the empty constructors are referenced directly.

>  * Empty constructor needed Instruction.readInstruction(). 
>  * Not to be used otherwise.
