That was (is?) a nice experiment by Anou. Basically we wanted some form of
'ant types' (configuration in XML) but outside of Ant. The configuration
file is read, and named configured objects are stored in a registry (by
namespaced name).

I think it works, but has some usage issues, so right now I'm kinda hoping
