+1 this is a great idea.  Break up the configuration into multiple 
files.  Don't know if spring can do this using references to load 
another file.

Also how will this effect the installation and relative verses full path 
names to referred configuration files.

Experiments need to be done.

100% agree on that.

Yeah right now I don't have the cycles.  For me my priorities are:

Dynamic Schema
Multi Master Replication
Getting Triplesec off the ground and working on JACC stuff with David

Oh and all those darn presentations I have to do :).
