		This constructor is used in class generation.  It supplies String type
		descriptors for return and parameter class types and allows delay of 
		the evaluation of those types until they are requested.  It does this
		by holding BSHType nodes, as well as an evaluation callstack, and
		interpreter which are called when the class types are requested. 
		Note: technically I think we could get by passing in only the
		current namespace or perhaps BshClassManager here instead of 
		CallStack and Interpreter.  However let's just play it safe in case
		of future changes - anywhere you eval a node you need these.

		String returnTypeDescriptor, BSHReturnType returnTypeNode,

		CallStack callstack, Interpreter interpreter
	) {

			methodBody, declaringNameSpace, modifiers );

		this.returnTypeNode = returnTypeNode;
