We are very interested in the SM Kernel at several projects.   This in
concert with JUnit OSGi will completely fullfil our dreams.  I had been
playing around with the SM Kernel to take ApacheDS and other servers to OSGi

commands and tab completion are cool in themselves.  Count me in for any
support or help needed in getting this project over to the Felix community.
