Can I remind everyone right now that you can't pass a DOM4J node to a
Configurable object?  I am trying to pass child configuraiton objects
to Components, and I don't want to have to propose a new Configurable
interface called DOMConfigurable to pass Nodes.  That is rediculous.
The addition of the Namespace class will allow me to use the _existing_
framework, yet solve my problem.  The Namespace objects are cached, and
their resources are managed.
