Thx for the pointers Jett. This is indeed one of the direction Katya and I had discussed.
Do you have precise pointers in the Toast code?

For example, in the Toast example (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Toast) for the OSGi book (http://equinoxosgi.org) we used a interface that provides the things needed. We provided service backed and extension backed implementations. Much nicer.
