Best way to extending existing GWT JRE implementation?

I am attempting to extending an existing GWT JRE implementation.  When a class an existing JRE class is missing, it is straightforward to add the missing class.  However when GWT provides a PARTIAL implementation, I have found no easy way to manually implement one or more missing methods.

I believe that deferred binding might be a possible solution, HOWEVER I am dealing with some shared library code and I don't want to have to resort to GWT.create everywhere.

When I simply try to override the GWT-supplied class (copy/pasting the existing GWT code, and adding to it), the changes to not appear to "stick" and the compiler appears to use the standard classes from gwt-user.jar.

Is there a simple solution to this?  I would like to avoid forking GWT locally to prevent future headache.
