I must admit that I agree with Kiran here.

Controls and extended operations ar etighly linked with the server
internals : you won't just add a control without modifying the logic of
the server to deal with the control.

Although we have to get more involved in OSGi, except that we don't have
time atm.

So my +1 to Kiran suggestion, and when we can spend some time to
understand the ins and outs of OSGi, we will rethink the full logic.
