I really think we need to support a myriad of ways and make it an
option.  I see 

1. At startup. 
2. At business object instance
3. whenever it is called
4. on demand
5. in batch (variation of on demand)

4. I mean that a developer can specifically say RELOAD now SPECIFIC
methods.  5. Would use the concept of 4, but allow a process in which to
batch.  So they could be put in night cycles.

I think also there should be option on all of them except at startup
that checks to make sure the object is not in a 'transaction' state
before applying.
