Hey, this really looks interesting! Unfortunately, I am pretty busy ATM 
and will need some time to grasp the concepts.

However, I have now a build problem: Maven complains that it cannot find 
the vfs snapshot jar (see below). Do we need to add the snapshot 
repository to the pom?


1) org.apache.commons:commons-vfs:jar:2.0-SNAPSHOT

   Try downloading the file manually from the project website.

   Then, install it using the command:
       mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=org.apache.commons 
-vfs -Dversion=2.0-SNAPSHOT -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file

   Alternatively, if you host your own repository you can deploy the 
file there:

       mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=org.apache.commons 
fs -Dversion=2.0-SNAPSHOT -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file 
-Durl=[url] -Dre

   Path to dependency:
         1) commons-configuration:commons-configuration:jar:1.7-SNAPSHOT
         2) org.apache.commons:commons-vfs:jar:2.0-SNAPSHOT

1 required artifact is missing.
