In CVS HEAD there's support for using InputModules directly from
sitemap(*) using a rather similar syntax "{module-name:parameter}" You
could now implement a component implementing the
o.a.c.c.modules.InputModule interface to access these parameters. 
This interface is very simple and implementing it should be trivial.

(*) only with the interpreted sitemap aka "treeprocessor"

In 2.0.[23] InputModules exists in the scratchpad area, but the
sitemap syntax mentioned is not available.
