I agree that getting a working anything is a good starting point. 
However, there do seem to be two modes of thought; JMX and not JMX 
(various threads, Config/JNDI/One True Way) have already discussed the 
benefits of either approach.

Provided that the current implementation is not heavily dependent on 
JMX (i.e. the classes don't unnecessarily pretend to be MBeans) then we 
should be able to migrate anything that evolves. However, in order for 
such changes to occur then it will be necessary for the configuration 
file not to be too dependent on JMX, or at least make it easy to 
refactor later.
