    The comparable code in Nifi used a static initializer to init the classes list.
    This uses a public method, and an AtomicBoolean flag to say it's been done.
    Why doesn't the initClasses() method need to be synchronized?
    (BTW, I really dislike these all-static or mostly-static classes, which seem to be trying
to be singletons without engaging in the discipline of singleton-ness, especially wrt thread
safeness.  But I understand they originated in the nifi code, so I'm not after you about that
