Oh, please god no! I find the way the buffer classes are generated a 
real pain. Yes, it is good for maintaining consistency across similar 
versions, but I don't see that as a good justification to introduce this 
complexity. I was secretly hoping that nio Buffer generation would go 
away in jdk8.
