Right, you should still be able to do local Admin, but you'll do it by using
a tool which gets a reference to an AxisServer (either a running one, like
the singleton, or one that gets generated just to do the admin stuff) and
uses the APIs.

You can still pass the engine your own registries to use, so we're not
really any less pluggable than we were.  I'm not sure anyone actually really
wants to use the pluggability at this level, though.

I don't see how - it's still a registry sitting in a file, with exactly the
same locking and sharing issues we had before.  The only difference is that
a) it's XML, and b) there are well-defined APIs for accessing the files.
And actually, I believe we'll find that accessing the registries only
through the APIs provides us with a place to put the synchronization code.
