New issue 463 by Add Descriptor parameter to all Parser interface methods in Java.

Currently, the Parser interface doesn't have a proposed Descriptor parameter in any of its methods. This leads to unnecessary Parser creation for each instance of the DynamicMessage and the likes. Having this parameter should not incur any performance penalty for the classes that know their type in advance, i.e. GeneratedMessage and friends, but should provide for better execution by DynamicMessage related classes.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Java 1.5-1.7, protobuf 1.5 RC1.

Please provide any additional information below.

The Parser interface is new to 1.5 version, so it is the best time to consider the proposed, as it has zero impact, yet.
