Okay, was just looking for more details.  Wasn't trying to shoot you down... :-)

So, you're not going as far as proposing real OSGi/Eclipse bundles, where we 
control which classes/methods are exported for others to use....

Sounds like a good start, as long as we can include the required bits as part 
of our normal m2 builds.
