The thing is that the configuration should be able to change programmatically as a result
of an admin type doing things with the running application.

I think that JXPath is an excellent solution, and have been using it in 
the new Ant embed proposal.

It makes it dead simple to get configuration stuff from basically 
anywhere using xpath... actually, JXPath is itself the package for 
Configuration ;-)

I know Avalon configuration, Tomcat IIUC uses Digester. We should at 
least look at what these deliver that Commons Config should deliver too.
