Oh, yes we *can* - we simply take Geronimo and require all users to use
that and then we can patch our extensions into the servlet spec and
finally get it right :)  (Ok, this is just a joke)

Now more seriously, it's already there. All the settings stuff I did in
the core is just for this. We use POPFs :) (plain old property files)
for this. See [1] for the introduction.
Now I'm thinking of extending that mechanism to include several block
specific property files.

See also my response to Upayavira [2] which should show that using
properties enables a lot of nice things. (Hopefully I succeeded there).
And all this is still compatible with the 2.1.x way of doing things!
