+1 on your comment ( and a preemptive -1 on changing any public method that
uses Hashtables to use Maps -  "just because we can" :-). Using Maps in new
code or tasks should be fine.

Refactoring some of the introspection code - like support for context class
loader or jdk1.2 methods - is worth it ( IMO ), as it'll make the code
easier to understand.
