    I'm hesitant about adding this, but see why you're doing it (because it fits with the
existing `lookup` naming, and is useful for you're use-case!).
    I don't want to bloat the public `ManagementContext` api. In other places, we've grouped
related methods (e.g. `entity.config().set(...)`, rather than `entity.setConfig(...)`). Perhaps
we should group the lookup methods.
    I also prefer the guava conventions, rather than returning null when not found. Should
we go for `Maybe<T> tryLookup(Predicate<? super T> filter)`, or even `tryFind()`?
That is different from the existing `lookup(String id)`, but is a better api and is consistent
with lots of other parts of Brooklyn.
