So I extend ContextPartition and implement 'getSuffix()' to return, 
say, 'chris', and then set 'server.db.partitions=chris' and 
'server.db.partitions.suffix.chris=o=chris', and I'm away?

Cool - I hadn't twigged how the Nexus knew about my code; I'd been 
expecting to hand it a java class name and a partition name, but this 
is even easier.

    thank you!
