I have a fairly simple use case. At the moment (and I may be using Brooklyn
wrongly) when I'm incrementally developing blueprints and their related
resources in my IDE, I tell Brooklyn to install a BOM file which looks a
bit like this:

    - name:
      version: 0.1.0.SNAPSHOT
    - "classpath://"
    - "classpath://"
    - "classpath://"

This installs the bundle and adds multiple BOMs, which in turn install
multiple catalog items.

But if I want to clean up my development work, I have to uninstall all the
catalog items manually, as well as my bundle.

Now the ZIP support is making this easier, but I would like it to be easier
still - I want to install the ZIP, and have all the catalog items magically
appear. I also want to be able to uninstall the ZIP, and have all the
catalog items disappear, everything cleaned up! And I also want this to be
true for Java entities inside OSGI bundles, not just ZIPs.

It's about have a single artifact which is treated as a unit, and
JustWorks(tm) - install it and everything is ready in one go, uninstall it
and everything is cleaned up in one go.
