Sorry. I got the wrong impression from your earlier message. I thought 
you were implying that writing the MBeans to change things was somehow 
harder.  Yes, some operations will be harder to perform than others. And 
in some cases an operation might be deemed too difficult to do, at least 
at first.  However, I wouldn't go looking for operations to perform just 
because you can. I would start by identifying the operations you would 
find valuable and then prioritize them by need and difficulty to 
implement.  Would your hypotheical of changing the working directory 
even make that list?
