> Features currently consist of a Java class that is complied at build time, plus a number
of js and css resources. These are then installed and persisted using the ServerFeature bean
and queried at runtime.
> However, there is no reason to require such a complex process for creating, building
and installing features, and I propose instead we follow Shindig's approach and create an
XML-based loading process.
> This would use a feature.xml file to configure each Feature object, e.g.: 
> <feature>
> 	<name></name>
> 	<script src=""/>
> 	<script src="jquery-1.5.min.js"/>
> 	<stylesheet src=""/>
> </feature>
> This can then be loaded and transformed into an IFeature implementation class at runtime.
> The Wave feature is a little more complex, but could be handled more simply as an exceptional
case where the WaveAPIImpl <IFeature> class is added explicitly to the feature loader.
