Subject Re: Shell GUI and Shell Plugin

I think many people plan to use Felix as both a background service and
to support gui applications. (I  do!)  Having a common felix component
that can be visualized from a gui application that allows the user to
manage the application's plugins (aka bundles) is certainly desirable. 

Look how well it works for eclipse!
