After reading some of the knopflerfish and material I agree 
that an OSGI kernel looks really good for our purposes. Standing on the 
shoulders of *other* giants might be a good idea for these relatively 
complex things, provided the external tools are backed by a solid (and 
ASF-compatible) community.

I haven't looked much at yet, but from a 
community point of view it might be a good idea to build more bridges 
to the ObjectWeb community - they seem to have some great stuff there.

To me this is a killer advantage of your proposal.

Big +1, or rather +0 as I won't have much cycles to contribute. But 
following the idea at least until it can be compared (also in 
performance) with the current code sounds really good.
