> I was looking into creating a ConfigurationFactory/Builder that is backed by a Clojure
DSL. It works rather beautifully until I tried to create a filter that is backed by a Clojure
function. There is literally  no way to pass arbitrary objects into a PluginFactory. All component
values and attributes are assumed to be Strings.

>   (appender "stdout" "CONSOLE"
>     (layout "PatternLayout"
>       (attribute "pattern" "%d [%t] %-5level: %msg%n"))
>     (filter "ClojureFilter"
>       ;; This LoC doesn't work: addAttribute(key, value)
>       ;; will store the toString() of the value. Bummer.
>       ;; I'd the so easy and beautiful if it didn't.
>       (attribute "fn" (fn [logger & more] (println logger)))))

>     (attribute "additivity" false))
>   (root-logger Level/DEBUG

>       @PluginAttribute("fn") IFn fn, ...) {
