+ * operations, and what if one implementation can 
+ * implement two different Adapters?
+ *
+ * Plugin is a CloudStack container for Adapters.  It rolls the following 
+ * capabilities into the one package for CloudStack to load at runtime.
+ *   - REST API commands supported by the Plugin.
+ *   - Components needed by the Plugin.
+ *   - Adapters implemented by the Plugin.
+ *   - Database operations
