I've got it working once using something like java:jclass in SLIME REPL, 
but not it doesn't seem to work (in a slightly different environment).

Note that if jar is added to classpath via java commandline 
Class.forName will work fine. That's probably the easiest way to get it 
Only loading jar dynamically via classloader is a problem.

Just tried it, doesn't seem to work either.
