Do we really need this? :) Currently the implementation is imho clean
and separating concerns: there is one component reading the properties
and providing them via Spring and another one is able to read avalon
configurations. I don't want to mix these as some day in the future we
will remove the Avalon stuff (or make it optional) and then we have to
change everything again.

Can we somehow "configure" this in a different way? Perhaps by passing
in a system property pointing to the properties directory?
