I thought of this as an option because it will really simplify a lot of
things, and I can avoid writing a configuration decompiler :o). But, then
will there be any instances where the user will not want the deployment plan
to be stored in the server as is? Will "not want to store the deployment
plan in the config-store" be ever a users' reason for supplying deployment
plan as an external file to the deployer?
