    I'm uncomfortable with doing this here. Feels like we should set up these JVM-wide provides
at the start, as part of setup. My main concern with doing it here is that it could impact
other stuff running in the JVM a while after Brooklyn has started, causing weird behaviour.
    It feels like the same argument for why it's a bad idea to call `System.setProperty("security....")`
in the middle of some class - thus impacting what other seemingly unrelated code in the JVM
will subsequently do.
    My other concern is that it doesn't give a way to see easily see all the dependencies
we're using (i.e. what we're injecting into the JVM).
