It's not possible to get the settings object in the element parser.
Actually its not possible to access any bean in the parser (and its also
not possible to get the ServletContext). I had a very hard time figuring
a way out of this problem. And I came up with the current solution which
registers special beans which do the work. So the parser only register
beans, pass some configuration information to the beans, but the actual
work is done in the beans when they are instantiated by Spring.
