I took your first approach. As I am totally new to hivemind, the follow
concepts are new to me; it worked for me but I just want to make sure I

<service-point id="PropertyEditorLoader" interface="java.lang.Runnable">

Finally, all services should get the PropertyEditorLoader ready except those
instantiated directly or indirectly through hivemind.Startup or
