IMO, it's a problem that constucting a plan from the running
configurations is so difficult. I'm not sure exactly if this is an
issue with the builders or with the GBean architecture or both. But I
wonder if use of the XBean kernel would facilitate this functionality?
I have spoken with Dain about this very functionality but I can't
recall where our conversation ended.

As for including the default plans in the binary, I say put them in
the docs dir. I don't think I want to require that the deployer be
used to extract a plan and I certainly don't want to advise users to
monkey around in the config-store. Why make access to the plans any
more difficult than opening them from the docs directory in a text

perl -e 'print unpack("u30","D0G)U8V4\@4VYY9&5R\"F)R=6-E+G-N>61E<D\!G;6%I;\"YC;VT*"
