Too fragile. This reminds me of the notion of "situated programming", featured in the talk by Rich Hickey: you and your programs operate in the middle of a bizarre and changing situation. For Clojure, the Java ecosystem is part of that situation. Even if some jars do not overlap today, you will be forced to take a minor update someday that introduces a clash. Or perhaps (quite likely) jars do overlap today, but you will take a minor update someday that causes the classpath to emerge from the hash-map differently and your program won't work anymore. The insight of the theory of "situated programs" is, not to hit a cliff when a perfectly legal quirk arises in the situation.
