Yes, please create a JIRA and attach the contribution there and we can 
then review what is the best way to handle it.

Sounds good. FYI, the demos I mentioned run in Karaf which can use 
either Equinox or Felix. I'm wondering though how the use of ServiceMix 
bundles can be avoided as they are just proper OSGI bundles, so look 
forward to seeing the example :-)

Thanks, Sergey
