This is exactly another problem I wanted to eradicate.  Perhaps we should
just create new OSGi category in the DIRLDAP JIRA.  We can just list these
issues and make sure we're straight for OSGi.

Exactly! I'm trying to separate service interfaces from their
implementations.  Besides these reasons I think this will also help to have
a more dynamically reconfigurable server.  Would be great to have you
involved in this process.  I think we're going to have to do OSGi and CiDIT
both at the same time.

Thanks Chris.
