To be clearer: Excalibur provides a lot of implementations, but none is 
built-in in the SourceResolver. They all have to be configured in the 
selector associated to the SourceFactorySelector role.

The factory with hint '*' in this selector has a special purpose, as it 
is used for protocols that don't have an explicit association. This is 
usually mapped to URLSourceFactory, which uses java.net.URL.
