Native Type Support In Scala? Wish for 2.8

I wish Scala would have native support for types. Currently in Scala you need to write classOf[Person] for the Java Person.class expression.

It would be nice to have something easier than the noisy classOf e.g. when using Google Guice. Because using Guice with Scala looks ugly. I know I could do DI without Guice/Spring in Scala, but for varios reasons I don't want to follow Jonas approach for now.

I think Groovy can just use Person for referencing types, but something like #Person would be ok too.
