Hmm, how about an OSGi framework implementation, which uses the 
repository ?? But until then, this is like a nice little useful thing.

Well, it makes deployment far easier, than having to touch applications 
and struggling with configuration files and class paths. It also takes 
the notion "Everything is content" one step ahead. It is like storing 
data and programs in the same location, the memory, isn't it ?

Touché :-) But I think that (1) loading classes from a repository is a 
good thing to have - everything is content
