Comment (by mpvanwinkle77):

 As far as design goes, I generally agree with @jipmoors that, given the
 WordPress API, any class "overloading" should take place in the context of
 a filter and NOT simply placing the file in a certain location.This change
 would solve both this issue and the rather clumsy way that external object
 caches are currently installed which can be problematic on locked-down
 filesystems. This comment isn't intended to block this patch but only to
 suggest a ticket for overhauling this in the future. Obviously the
 implementation would have to be to respect the file-based overloading
 first so as not to create any backward compatibility issue. But over time
 that approach could be deprecated.
