I think the important thing is to make the configuration as similar as
possible across all the protocols, which makes it easier for users and
for the doco we have to write.  So, it makes sense to start by
extending ServiceConfiguration and simply ignoring some methods.  I
don't think there can always be a perfect match between a base class
and what the subclasses reuse.  Once there's code in front of us it
will be easier to see whether subclassing ServiceConfiguration makes
sense.  Since Spring doesn't care whether the beans all subclass
anything, you can always refactor later to NOT extend
ServiceConfiguration and simply work to make sure any overlapping
methods follow the same naming conventions.  Again, an adapter config
class for the HTTP service makes sense from a usability point-of-view.

It seems like the search base DN's are the most contentious since NTP
and HTTP won't use them, but I've been thinking more lately that we'll
be able to get rid of them.
