Sketch of a test.

Jesse said that MetaInfServicesLookup should be able to handle broken services - but it does not at least if the service class' parent is not resolvable. I will attach a sketch of a simple test (diff) and a jar file. You need to change the path in the test to an absolute path to your copy of metainftest.jar (the test will obviously need to be improved before inclusion).
