I dont like it to have to pass strings around.
The CommitService was just meant to be a interface - a CVSFileProvider 
would return a concret implementation like CVSCommitService.

That way if one compiles a program one can be sure that the syntax is 
correct e.g findService("comit") is a painful mistake.

And having a Class[] findServices() would make it easy to write 
interactive programs where one can use reflection to examine the 
possible setup of such a service.
