Ok, because it's small I think we can consider it, can you provide the 
hooks to load different providers?  The non default providers themselves 
can be a subproject.  We need to carefully consider security since we're 
making it possible for downloaded code to resolve classes.

My SecurityManager and policy providers were developed in skunk, then 
merged.  URI changes were made in trunk, although this was a big change 
semantically, the code footprint is small.  For large changes to 
foundation code we need skunk, not everything can be bolted on or 
plugged in.
