and the optional use of the shielding classloader should complete the list.

The reloading classloader stuff becomes useful if you want to run a block, the 
deployer if you want to create a web application. I propose that we start from 
the reloading classloader stuff and merge the missing functionality from the 
deployer modules into it.

The perfekt solution would even go one step further and abstract the deployer 
from Maven so that somebody could write an Ant task. I'm not sure if I will have 
time for this extra round.

As already said, I plan to have a first milestone release by the end of March, 
provided that commons-jci will be propertly relased by then.
