Absolutely. The revised APIs are built with extension points in mind - just at the moment
you have to drop them into WEB-INF/lib (And sometimes wire in spring) - more dynamic would
be great. Ideally we could just use something like Felix Web Console as a basic administration.

That's a consideration for the UI framework selected though - need to be possible to contribute
UI content through a plugin.
