remote import statements

i was just wondering if you could use some import statements that actually import classes / packages from remote sites....i know rmi is the answer for this, but i seriously would think a statement like
import com.sun.java/utils/something/something.*;
would make a lot of sense since you don't need to manually download the package onto your computer....imagine moving the same program amongst different sites in a production environment, you would need to keep shifting the package & this would really hamper development....
thanks in advance
