Ok. Today, I spent something like 5 hours trying to get some new classes 
injected into LdapService, and make them work nicely with xbeans. So 
far, it's a plain failure.

I will be very clear : if we are to continue with xbeans+spring, I will 
-1 the release. This is absolutely not mature, cryptic, unusable, 
undocumented. In other words, it recalls me Maven 1.

Unless xbeans reach another level of stability, I want it out of the 
configuration. I'm fed of this piece of garbage.

I think this is something we have to discuss at ApacheCon, but the 
decision should be done on the ML.
