Before I answer let me state I have no interest in any particular outcome.  I get pinged occasionally
on "scanning", I pop my head up and try to be helpful, but exactly what I'm supposed to help
do has always been hazy. :)  So I just go back to work.

So....  Your code looks good.  Looks like it's looking for a home and paperwork is ready to
go.  I suspect you use it and like it.  I don't see a reason to wait on moving it here.

I wrote the xbean-finder lib which is why I keep getting pinged.  It's the scanning library
used by OpenEJB, TomEE, and Geronimo.  Struts uses a copy of it.  It has moved around a lot:
Codehaus OpenEJB -> Codehaus XBean -> Apache XBean.  It's been proposed to move it yet
again to Commons.  Whatever makes people happy.

Anyway, looks like I've been pinged again.  My head's up.  Willing to help if it's clear what
that help is supposed to be.  Meantime going back to work.... :)
