I have no suggestion but only to remove support for such stuff. These days, when you define

components as Spring beans you don't need to support configuration passed from one component
another. At least I don't see any need for supporting that kind of configuration.

If we remove this, then of course we'll have to release 2.0 of link rewriter block but I have
problem with it.
