> During configuration, it would be nice to acquire objects from JNDI and use the returned
objects as properties on other configured objects (e.g. in INI config).
> There is a JndiRealmFactory that already supports looking up entire Realms from JNDI,
but it is more likely that lower-level objects would be acquired from JNDI instead (e.g. DataSources)
and the Realms would be configured in INI and use those objects.
> This would be pretty easy to support:  there is already a Shiro Factory interface and
an AbstractFactory class.  A new JndiObjectFactory subclass could be created that uses a JndiLocator
to look up and acquire objects.
> The ReflectionBuilder implementation would need to be changed to handle encountering
Factory objects - if an object in configuration specifies a Factory as a property, the builder
needs to call the factory's getInstance method instead of using the Factory directly.  I think
this could be done in the ReflectionBuilder#resolveReference method without touching any other
