Even then, I think this approach would only help if everyone wanted to 
use each others' stream handlers. For Felix, we wanted them isolated by 
framework instance, which is possible since we know something about the 
class loader and bundle details. If this were made to be completely 
generic so that anyone could participate, then it would be even more 
difficult to multiplex for isolation purposes.
