:-) I have had conversations where that was requested and seem to  
recall musing/wishing for this in the past...

Glad to see this discussion occurring.

I like the concept of profiles.

My one comment, at the moment, is the discussion may be too focused on  
the admin console. I'd like to be sure we also include command-based  
scenarios as well (and even maven?). IMO, we should permit the same  
basic abstractions (at least for the command-based scenario).
