Subject Re: [VFS] How to use operations

I am not sure, this is some of the last things I added (with the help of 
a contributor) but didn't finished it, nor documented it :-( *help*

Or should any VFS client (e.g. JCommander)  know how to discover which operations exist, select
one, configure it and execute it?
The idea is to being able to lookup "abstract" operations. For example 
the "update" operation and VFS returns a CsvUpdate or SvnUpdate 
depending on the used implementation.
As far as I remeber there is a way to list all file operations. A tool 
like JCommander than can use reflection to get an idea of which 
configuration options are available and can present a user a list then.
