sounds good to me.

I like JMX and think thats probably the best way to move. I would prefer it if 
no actual JMX code needed to be in the .sar file (I don't believe it does?) 
and it was all done in the manager. (The manager can load xml descriptors via 
classes like object.getClass().getResourceAsStream("blah.xmbean");

I haven't actually looked at the commons one. I vaguely recall that it 
registered a bunch of different mbeans per descriptor rather than just one. 
Thus it is probably not suitable for us as such. Though it would be useful to 
use the same or similar format to describe the mbeans.

The big mistake that men make is that when they turn thirteen or fourteen and
all of a sudden they've reached puberty, they believe that they like women.
Actually, you're just horny. It doesn't mean you like women any more at
twenty-one than you did at ten.                --Jules Feiffer (cartoonist)
