Awesome! I've already taken a look at the changes and wonder why it
wasn't me who came up with such an easy yet brilliant solution. I
think I couldn't already have done it, but somehow I can't find an
answer why I didn't ;-) It seems so easy now.

Time to write some docs and examples about it. I'll be doing some for
OpenEJB 3 (it looks it became a reference implementation for XBean and
those new features ;-))
