This was actually my first implementation, but I think there is a
difference between properties which you might want to use for anything
and a mechanism for overriding the configuration of your beans. The
latter is also just for spring (and Avalon).

So we have:
WEB-INF/cocoon/properties - with any properties :)
WEB-INF/cocoon/spring/*.xml         Spring bean definitions
WEB-INF/cocoon/spring/*.properties  Spring bean configurations

The difference might be subtle but I think we should keep this separate.
But of course this is not carved in stone yet, so we can change it in
every way we can agree on.
