> Type isn't a very descriptive name for a plugin attribute, and elementType isn't much
better.  The two of them together lead to confusion.
> Are there better names we can use?
> The list of 'types' include core, converter, fileconverter (slightly confusing), configurationfactory,
lookup and keyprovider...
> The list of 'elementTypes' is larger, and includes appender, layout, advertiser, etc...
> It would be great if we could find another name for one of these..preferably 'type'...how
about...category??
